Transformational technology continues to advance the pace of change in the Australian Utility industry, and this sixteenth edition of #AUSUW sees a continuation of last year’s digital theme. And this is in keeping with the #AUSUW17 post show report which states, ‘the future is likely to be won by businesses with the right mix of centralised and decentralised infrastructure and those with business models which enable resources to be shared in local areas through interconnected infrastructure and digital platforms.’
Andrew Bettanay, CIO of Endeavour Energy, will deliver the Energy Keynote address, entitled “Building the Agile Utility with real time responsiveness”. With presentations by digital utility ‘thought leaders’ focussed on ‘digital transformation and customer centricity’ in both the water and energy sectors, the key conference streams for 2018 are:
Smart Networks and Digital Meters;
Analytics Programmes and Cloud Platforms;
Innovations in Digital Services.
Speakers include representatives from Ausgrid, Sydney Water, Tritium, IOT Alliance Australia, ERM Power, Transpower, Hunter Water, Itron, AGL Energy, Electricity Authority of New Zealand, SyncDog, Enosi Foundation, Smart Energy Water, to name a few.
