Episode Description

Utilities. How “smart” are they about the smart meter data they can now read and its value to the consumer? Our experts weigh in. Roque Marinho: “With the smart meter being part of operations...utilities have to cope with the fact that there is no turning back on the ‘quantum leap’ on the multitude of reads.” Stuart Ravens: “Smartness begins and ends with analyzing the vast volumes of data created in a smart grid deployment.” Christine Hertzog: “There’s not much research about how much consumers really understand about who might touch their energy consumption data (nor what it’s worth) when third parties are involved.” James McClelland: “A whole new area of service will be created, providing energy efficiency to the consumer. How far inside of the meter do you want outside companies to have automatic access to adjust your energy consumption? Depending on the type of customer you are, I think the answer will be, ‘It depends.’” Join us for Utilities: Shining the light on the smart grid.
