With only a week left until the Smart Metering East Coast conference, seats are going fast. The opening session, boasting a keynote presentation by Lloyd Yates, CEO of Progress Energy Carolinas, will be followed by several stimulating utility case studies and interspersed by a number of technical presentations.

Speakers will enthrall you with lessons learned at some of the region’s most recognized utilities pushing the boundaries of advanced metering. From energy efficiency efforts at Duke Energy to smart grid developments at PEPCO Holdings, you can find out for yourself the opportunities and challenges in this emerging element of the utility business. Further case studies from OGE and AEP will investigate the AMI business case, while Progress Energy and Dominion Power will present smart grid related papers.  

Forming the right strategic partnerships for your advanced metering project is vital to its success. Several of the industry’s foremost technical and advisory leaders will be in attendance, including: Sensus Metering, SilverSpring, Echelon, EFR (Germany), Elster, Itron, Oracle Utilities, Trilliant, Comverge, Eka Systems, Enspiria Solutions, MeterSmart and Tantalus.

Find all the answers to your questions with the daily closing panel discussions, the first focusing on the consumer benefits and how utilities can better understand their customers, and the second exploring issues around interoperability and project partnerships in greater detail.

And do not forget to relax, unwind and mingle with your peers, partners and industry counterparts at the networking function on Monday 27 October, hosted by Elster with entertainment from the Will McBride Band.
