The Entrepreneurial Utility
Utility industry “disruptors” are driving executives utility-wide to explore new business models. Join these executive roundtables discuss how the disruption -- driven by technology, costs and customers -- is causing a shift to what is being called the “new energy evolution” and how utilities can evolve along with it. Utility executives from across the business will gather to share their struggles, ideas and predictions on what the biggest disruptors will be and the best ways to address the business challenges they present.

The Digital Movement
Customers and technology are accelerating the digitalization of utilities, as well as the subsequent impacts on operations, customers and the environment. These discussions will bring utility executives to the table for conversations about how they are navigating the new terrain, how digitalization is enhancing engagement and customer centricity, the issues executives from across the utility are struggling with, and how they are meeting these challenges head on.

The Power Shift
The benefits of microgrids are becoming more and more compelling -- solar costs have fallen and energy storage solutions aren’t far behind; distributed energy resource deployments are growing and making use of existing resources; and a more resilient grid is not only a customer demand but a necessity. Meet with other executives from across different utilities and business units for robust discussions about where others are on their grid modernization journey; what technologies and energy sources appear to be the most promising; the lessons they have learned; the roadblocks they have encountered; and, perhaps most importantly, how they are addressing such issues.
