Episode Description

The buzz: “It’s simply not feasible to rip out utility infrastructure to build new…There is, however, another way..introduce a layer of digital intelligence.” (Peter Madden OBE, 07/21/16). With the U.N. forecasting 70+% of the world will live in cities by 2050, Utilities are feeling the urgency to deliver energy, gas, water, and other resources efficiently, cost-effectively and sustainably to the people, businesses, government and non-government organizations in urban areas. How to meet this challenge? The experts speak. Steve Sarnecki, OSIsoft: “To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk” (Thomas Edison). Russ Vanos, Itron: “Success doesn't come from pie-in-the-sky thinking. It's the result of consciously doing something each day that will add to your overall excellence” (Nick Saban). Lisa D’Alesandro, SAP: “There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it” (Edith Wharton). Join us for Utilities in Cities: Get Smart!
