Hilton Austin - Downtown Austin, TX
This year’s Energy Forum promises to deliver another dynamic lineup of speakers, events and conversations—all in a spectacular new setting in the heart of downtown Austin.
While the bitcoin debate rages on, the power-hungry technology behind it is clearly here to stay. Join us as we break down exactly what blockchains are, what they aren’t, and how utilities can prepare for a blockchain-driven future.
For many lower-income customers, saving energy may seem beyond their grasp. Join the conversation to discover both new and tried-and-true solutions for how best to reach and serve customers who are most in need.
To be successful in today’s saturated media landscape, a marketing campaign needs to connect to customers wherever they are. From mobile to point-of-purchase, we’ll provide a framework to engage customers through modern, omni-channel marketing.
As utilities are under rising pressure to deliver higher energy savings at lower and lower costs, sophisticated midstream programs have become essential to delivering upon increasing expectations. Hear how a series of program design changes and technology improvements helped several utility program administrators get the most out of their midstream programs.
Discover how to take your residential and commercial customer outreach to the next level with targeted marketing automation strategies, based on load profile, monthly or hourly consumption data, and other data driven indicators.
As more utilities roll out their own electric vehicle programs, what was once just a lot of talk is now a certifiable trend. Join us as we delve into the real-world data, solutions, challenges and success stories behind some of these programs—and discover what it means for the future of utility-led EV programs.
As the energy industry adapts to changes in technology, customer expectations and an ever-shifting political landscape, we lag behind when it comes to understanding and capturing the benefits of diversity. We’ll discuss how utilities have successfully leveraged diversity to target hard-to-reach customers, identify and groom talent, and drive better business decisions. Achieving diversity can positively impact your business—through revenue contribution, job creation, innovative solutions and earned income.
Smart homes offer an undeniable potential for utilities, yet the complex political and logistical landscape surrounding them has made it a challenge to incorporate a smart home approach into residential programs. This session will look at real-world success stories to dive into the trends, challenges and opportunities of smart homes.
The grid is in need of modernization, but determining just how to do it is a constant source of debate. Don’t miss a productive conversation on how flexible demand side resources can help modernize the grid, empower customers, and lower system costs.
In this hands-on, participant-centered workshop, we’ll facilitate the commercial and industrial customer relationship conversation between utilities, addressing questions like, why do utilities want to engage C&I customers, how are utilities engaging these customers, and what do customers really want ? With support from our Strategic Energy Management (SEM) and Key Accounts experts, we invite you to join our interactive discussion to better understand the needs of your customers, the goals of engagement, and how to build trust and long-lasting relationships.
