Startups and Utilities: Powering Up
February 20, 2014
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
Today’s buzz: Utilities. Beyond their original mandate to deliver water and power, utilities today are awash in waves of big data, go-green, and get-smart. What if a tech startup could help them swim to safety? The experts speak. Brian Weakliam, Bankhawk Analytics: “Information is the oxygen of the modern age. It seeps through the walls topped by barbed wire, it wafts across the electrified borders.” (Ronald Reagan) Derick Jose, Flutura: “The Utility sector is ripe for unlocking energy efficiencies by reducing technical and commercial losses along the complete grid value chain. It also offers to understand energy consumption patterns at a level of granularity previously not possible.” Luisa Silva, SAP: “It followed from the special theory of relativity that mass and energy are both but different manifestations of the same thing—a somewhat unfamiliar conception for the average mind.” (Albert Einstein) Join us for their insights on Startups and Utilities: Powering Up.
