The tenth-annual Smart Energy Summit will take place February 18-20, 2019, at the Omni Downtown in Austin, Texas.

Smart Energy Summit addresses the challenge and opportunity for utilities as consumer adoption of connected products and participation in renewable power generation increase. The event addresses the new approaches and solutions that are using connectivity and data to transform how energy is delivered.

This event also examines the impact of the IoT on utilities, energy service providers, and consumers.

Key Questions Addressed:

1. How can utilities integrate smart home and distributed energy resources into the grid?
2. What incentives are needed for consumers to operate their home in a way that is aligned with the needs of the grid operator?
3. What can energy providers do to move beyond incentives and alignment to become an active participant in the smart home?
4. How can energy providers generate incremental revenue in the smart home?
5. How can energy providers move the energy management market forward?
6. What can energy providers do move from active participant to an indispensable element of the smart home?
