We’re having a blast at Chattanooga’s SmartGrid Roadshow this week. The show’s been a host to hundreds of industry-changing intelligence that will lead electric utilities into the next generation of energy. We’re here collaborating with other energy market technology leaders about how utilities can re-engineer their business processes to support grid digitization and more customer empowerment.
A key part of this is the role of open source in SmartGrid technology – and questions about how it will be leveraged within new industry standards for application development, infrastructure, platforms, etc (check out TVA’s code library, an open source project for Phasor Data Concentrators (PDC), for a taste).
In a world where climate change is already active (yes, it is), SmartGrid technology – which is already the direction of the energy industry – will shepherd us into an era of change. We’re excited to help utilities prepare to evolve. Thanks again to the folks who put together the Roadshow as a summit for new ideas.
