Keynote Announced for 2nd Annual Utility Analytics Week this September
The Utility Analytics Institute today announced that the second-annual Utility Analytics Week will kick off with a keynote from Southern Company’s chairman, president, and chief executive officer, Tom Fanning, who will discuss the important role utility analytics plays in grid operations, customer engagement, and the transformation of utility business-both at Southern Company and industry-wide.
The conference will gather the largest group of analytics professionals from Sept. 23-25, 2013, in Atlanta, GA, to help energy companies build the foundation for analytics success.
“Utility Analytics Week provides first-hand insights based on actual utility case studies to help ensure your analytics foundations are able to support your growing efforts-whether you’re just getting started or well on your way with analytics,” said Mike Smith, vice president, Utility Analytics Institute.
As the only case-study-focused conference developed by utility and industry peers, Utility Analytics Week provides a forum for leading utilities and solution providers to answer tough analytics questions and share best practices, lessons learned, and challenges they’ve overcome to launch analytics efforts that are transforming their businesses.
The conference provides a mix of member-led workshops and case study presentations, working group research findings, and think-tank and solution-leadership sessions — focused on topics including data quality, meter data analytics, predictive maintenance, customer engagement, and grid optimization. The conference also provides a solutions-based exhibit hall and networking opportunities.
“We’ve developed what we feel is the ultimate environment for analytics learning,” Smith said. “You’ll gain new insights into the successful applications of analytics by other utilities and leave with valuable insights that you can apply in your organization immediately.”
