Session Introduction - Investing in Technology or Innovation?

Emerging new technologies are disrupting the energy business. Harnessing the power of new technologies requires organisations to change as well. The myth that the utility industry is historically slow to adopt new technologies has to be busted. Disruption is real, but what strategies should utilities adopt to counter this disruption? Change you culture or invest in more technology? First half of this session is on Exponential Organizations, the second half is on Exponential Technologies.

Grid Edge Visibility is Important

  • Customers are choosing to adopt distributed energy resources (DERs) in record numbers and far faster than anticipated.
  • To control and optimize the edge of the grid requires utilities to have visibility or model all the way down to the consumer level.
  • Swings in distributed generation and variations in consumption patterns create information that is vital to the efficient control of the network.
