As smart infrastructure and smart cities progress it’s not just about deploying new technologies but forming new partnerships and collaborations as well. In a world that blurs the lines between traditional utility-owned, community-owned and customer-owned assets, who owns what? And how do we create the right partnerships to fuel the innovation needed for truly smart utilities and cities?
Avista’s Heather Rosentrater and Itron’s Sharelynn Moore discussed these questions and more during a panel at ETS17. The session explored the opportunities for developing the new partnerships and technology platforms needed for grid and city modernization.
