How can utilities innovate to thrive in the future?
May 26 - 27, 2015
How can utilities innovate to thrive in the future? That was the subject of PURC director Mark Jamison’s talks in Poznan, Poland. Dr. Jamison explained that there are three types of innovation: Innovation in the known world, in the knowable world, and to the unknown world. Innovation in the known world is adopting new technologies and practices to improve how today’s system works. Innovation in the knowable world adapts the system to address customer frustrations that may not usually be seen as an energy problem. Innovation to the unknown world replaces the current system with entirely new ways of improving customers’ lives. A summary of Dr. Jamison’s comments are available at http://www.techpolicydaily.com/technology/how-to-save-energy-utilities/. He spoke at the International Congress of Energy Science and Industry Energi@21, Innovative Energy Utility, on May 26 – 27, 2015.
