The buzz: “There's probably 5000 times more solar energy than the humans will ever need…It's a celebration of the abundance of human creativity combined with the abundance of the natural world” [William McDonough). Utilities are starting to grasp that the energy system of the future will fail without innovation, while facing consumer demands for better service and environmental sustainability. How to succeed? Employ or partner with innovative startups who think out of the box using AI, Internet of Things, and Blockchain. The experts speak. Dr. Christina Wuerthner, Enersis Suisse AG: “Investigate what is, and not what pleases” (Goethe). Ian Nazzari, Huru Systems: “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles…credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena” (Theodore Roosevelt). Dave Katona, SAP: “Life is all about seating and lighting” (Graydon Carter). Join us for Startups and Utilities: Powering-Up People, Saving Billions.
