Webinar Description
To plan effectively, public power officials must understand how technology, economic and business developments will drive cities to “smarten up”. This session will review the new services and performance improvements made possible by the smart grid, as well as the ways in which cities will depend on smart grids to meet the demands of explosive growth. Topics include engineering & operations in a smart grid environment, examples of services made possible by the nexus of smart cities and smart grids, and the role of the Internet as the global platform for all of these developments.

Moderated by: Bill Smart, Senior Vice President, Business Development, Hometown Connections, Arvada, Colo.
