Digitalization: Powering Utilities and Smart Cities
November 6, 2018
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: “We’re on the path to treating cities like living entities with biosignatures waiting to be decoded and leveraged” (Hatem Zeine www.forbes.com). Faced with major weather events, aging infrastructure and more demanding consumer expectations, the utility industry is in the midst of unprecedented change. Digitalization, intelligent technologies and data are helping utilities and cities operate more efficiently, engage better with customers and become resourceful stewards of the world’s electricity, gas and water. The experts speak. Jay Millar, Itron: “Prediction is hard, especially when it is about the future” (Karl K. Steincke). David Harkness, Xcel Energy: “To be the man, you gotta beat the man” (Rick Flair). Michael O’Donnell, SAP: ‘It’s not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles ... The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena…” (Theodore Roosevelt). Join us for Digitalization: Powering Utilities and Smart Cities.
