Our industry is faced with a myriad of challenges and opportunities – Increasing penetration of renewables and distributed energy is creating added operational complexity on the electric grid.  Fresh water is becoming scarce and aging infrastructure is leading to increasing operational costs for water utilities.

Leaders must transform and navigate their organizations through these challenges to keep pace with technology and an ever-changing business environment. They also know that transformation and path to digitization is not an easy journey. It offers new value but also poses new challenges often requiring a fundamental culture shift within the organization.

In this panel session, we will introduce different leadership perspectives on creating breakthrough change for utilities to take charge of their future and lead transformation.

  • What is the vision for the utility of the future?
  • How are utilities responding to drivers and disruptive forces (i.e. distributed grid, aging infrastructure, increasing digitization of assets, pro-active consumers etc.)
  • How are utilities prioritizing investments long-term to address the changing environment to be ready for the utility of the future?
  • How are leaders navigating their organization through the transformation?

Hear from industry and utility experts what it takes for utilities to tackle future challenges and uncertainties.
