The Truly Intelligent Utility
Wednesday, Mar 27, 2013
The modern utility is transforming. The utility of the past was resistant to change, committed to sweeping controls, and weighed down with regulations, while the transformed utility is more flexible, data wielding, and consumer conscious and will not only change how utilities interface with consumers, but the entire electricity distribution market
The panel discussion will address:
How are utilities becoming smarter? What are utilities doing to become smarter?
What technologies, systems operations, and new business models are enabling this jump in intelligence?
How has the influx of the renewable energy technologies into the energy market pushed utilities to evolve? Are some renewable technologies more important than others?
What are the key infrastructure "sweet spots" for grid modernization that will allow utilities to become more intelligent?
Are utilities truly participants in their own evolution or is change being forced on them from without
