To face our common threat and adapt in the face of climate change, corporations are trying to move aggressively away from an extractive economy. In this new and more collaborative environment, utilities are not simply replacing fossil fuel generation with renewables. Today’s energy companies are setting net-zero emissions targets that balance load (demand) and generation capacity. Customer behavior, environmental impact, and equity now factor into the calculations of utility operations. Mining data is now the most profitable form of extraction. Hear from experts who will describe tactics for utilities to use data to realize value in the new energy economy.  View Today!

Data + Speed = The FACTS (fast acting AC transmission systems) But there's problems with both data and speed. 1. Signing up a million hot water heaters to participate in demand response does not equal a million (turned on) hot water heaters that can be turned off as a dispatchable resource. And 2. Although we can replace inertia (spinning mass) with speed, we haven't developed a control system fast enough to do the job. Yet.
