Pittsburgh--FreeMarkets Inc. plans to open a Houston office to focus on the energy industry. Several energy companies with extensive b-to-b e-commerce initiatives, including Enron Corp., are based in Houston. The move by FreeMarkets, a b-to-b auction developer, comes as energy companies are increasing their hub projects in anticipation of more energy crises such as California's current power shortage. The Houston office will also serve chemical and engineering companies.
