Emerging Trends: Many things in our lives have the word “smart” associated with them these days. Our presenters will have great ideas on how to incorporate changes like new technologies, market forces, customer preferences, regulations, and risk management. You will leave with ideas on how to build a smarter utility that aligns with residential and commercial customer expectations.
