The SCV Section and SPECTRUM present the first in a series of forums on today’s emerging technologies. The leading software, database, and data processing companies â?? Cisco, IBM, Microsoft, and SAP among them â?? are getting seriously interested in the business opportunities that the Smart Grid will bring. Over the next 5 to 6 years, close to 60 million smart meters will be installed in the United States. Most of the country’s electricity distributors will be giving their customers a tool that they can use to conserve energy and save money â?? and that the companies themselves can use to improve reliability, maintenance, and book-keeping. Talks: Architecture and Strategy, (Intel); plus 2-3 others representing hardware, software, energy and technology companies, with Panel discussion.
