Disrupt, Innovate, Repeat: A DTECH-Themed Round Up

Posted by Shaina Kaye on February 7, 2019 at 10:30 AM

A postcard from New Orleans: Harrison Grubbs, our Director of Strategic Partnerships, is attending the annual DistribuTech Conference and Exhibition this week. The conference gathers the latest disruptive and innovative energy technology products and experts in one place to network, collaborate and share best practices. In between sessions, Harrison has shared a sneak peek for the rest of us here at KSV.

A few focal points:

  • The need to optimize current infrastructure with better, smarter parts, such as monitoring systems, sensors, drones, remote access and mobile capabilities
  • Making internal utility operations more efficient and effective via software for monitoring and optimizing grids, buildings and even field crews
  • A continued focus on the future; EVs and renewables are a relatively small component of this conference, but there are many examples of the underlying infrastructure that will help support the future of energy and utilities alike

Another thing he’s noticed? DTECH features the technology that will allow for future customer programs and education. What many of these companies need is an innovative marketing strategy to help effectively communicate these complex ideas to current and potential customers—we can help with this

With these illuminating ideas from #DTECH2019 buzzing around in our brains, we’ve decided to share four additional moments of energy disruption and innovation that are inspiring us right now:
