Parks Associates is Supporting Utility Cloud 2020

Parks Associates is supporting Utility Cloud 2020, a conference surrounding the topics of integrating cloud solutions to manage the influx of large volumes of data in a dynamic grid environment. This event takes place September 15-17, 2020, in Amsterdam.

Drawing together utility software, system and transformation leads, this 3-day case study driven program provides an intensive review of the latest cloud technologies, strategies and solutions to manage an ever-increasing data load and better integrate the digitalized gird.

Parks Associates recent research that more than half of UK broadband households with a smart thermostat find third-party monitoring of smart thermostats very valuable.  A smart home where multiple devices are controlled in coordination maximizes energy savings and gives consumers new insights into the efficiency and operation of their home devices. With electric vehicles, battery storage systems, and residential solar gaining momentum, combined with the growth of zero energy homes and the higher number of connected devices entering the home, the opportunity for these solutions to work together in a holistic home energy management system is needed. 

As utilities prepare their organizations for major shifts in energy use, it is imperative they assess individual use cases to effectively implement the transformation into a cloud-based system. This intensive 3-day program will provide utilities with the information and inspiration they need to drive their cloud integration efficiently without disrupting normal grid operations.

Alongside the case study led program there will also be technology-innovation panels, a series of end-user driven roundtable discussions, a live demo lab of the latest vendor tools, an exhibition area displaying state of the art cybersecurity solutions and an evening networking reception open to all participants.
