New Energy Era Prosumers; Utility-Customer Partnerships
October 26, 2016
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: The Electric Slide. News flash for Utilities: You can no longer be profitable on a one-sided business model providing power to customers. Enter the prosumer. While the consumer is utility-dependent and generates revenues, the prosumer and utility are interdependent. The utility needs the prosumer’s commitment to reduce electricity use or supply it to the grid at specified times, and the prosumer needs the utility’s kilowatts and gets a new omni-channel experience. The experts speak. Robert Thiele, OpenText: 'We used to live in a world where there are people, private citizens, a world where there are businesses, and now…people can become businesses in 60 seconds' -Brian Chesky, Airbnb. Jacqueline Robinson, DTE Energy: 'Restlessness and discontent are the first necessities of progress' -Thomas Edison. James McClelland, SAP: 'Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake' -Napoleon Bonaparte. Join us for New Energy Era Prosumers: Utility-Customer Partnership.
