Last week, over 1,600 registrants in 30 countries from over 300 utilities—keeping the lights on for all 50 U.S. states—experienced how utilities are leading positive change for the future. The incredible Landis+Gyr community came together to explore how we’re building a brighter energy future, together.
The conference kicked off with a welcome from Global CEO, Landis+Gyr Group, Werner Lieberherr, followed by a powerful session where Carlos Nouel, VP of Smart Solutions at National Grid, joined Prasanna Venkatesan, President and CEO of Landis+Gyr Americas, to discuss National Grid’s vision for the energy future. Tim Weidenbach, SVP of Technology, closed the session with innovation highlights and three ways we will shape the future of energy. The day’s breakout sessions covered a range of topics from leading with purpose to how utilities are leveraging consumer energy insights for a variety of use cases. We closed out the day’s session content with a lively panel discussion about our partnership with Google Cloud. Check out a recap of day 1 here.
In addition to a global pandemic, 2020 brought hurricanes, wildfires, and unprecedented winter storms to many parts of the U.S. Day 2 kicked off with a panel of utilities sharing how they prepare for these events, how lessons from natural disasters help prepare for the future, and the role of smart grid technology in planning and recovery efforts. The day’s breakout sessions covered a range of topics from how Revelo is a game-changer for the energy industry to how AI & machine learning is creating future opportunities for utilities.
