The Challenges and Strategies for Bringing New Utility Technology to Market: Exclusive Interview with James Linder of the Tennessee Valley Authority - [an Energy Central Power Perspectives™ Interview]
- Aug 23, 2019 4:30 pm GMT
As the energy industry continues innovating at a breakneck pace, utilities are eager to integrate the exciting new technologies into their offerings for customers as well as for internal benefits. Roll out of new technology, though, is not always as simple as plug and play, and the forward-looking utilities across the industry must be careful to develop thoughtful strategies in the how and when they bring those technologies to their market. While the opportunities are great, the challenges must be recognized as just as present.
That’s where James Linder comes in for Tennessee Valley Authority, as he holds the title of ‘Innovation Scout’ for the power utility. James is mindful of the right and the wrong strategies when it comes to bringing these shiny new toys for the utility sector, and luckily for the rest of us he’s going to be sharing some of those secrets at the upcoming AESP Summer Conference in Toronto. Before James shares his thoughts on the ‘Bringing New Technologies to Market: Challenges and Strategies’ panel, I was able to chat with him to bring some of that wisdom out for the Energy Central community.
