    • Opportunities for US Companies in the European Smart Grid Market Opportunities for US Companies in the European Smart Grid Market Malavika Tohani, Frost & Sullivan; Shannon Fraser, U.S. Commercial Service, Paddy Young, European Utility Week Recorded: Sep 3 2015 3:00 pm UTC 55 mins
    • Smart grid has emerged as a fast-growing area in the past five years. However, it is not one big market; it is an amalgamation of different sectors, technologies, products, and components. Installation of smart meters is considered the first step toward smart grid implementation. The smart meter rollout in Europe is well under way, boosted by the European Union legislation to achieve 80 percent coverage by 2020. However, there are other growth areas, beyond smart meters, that are interesting for U.S. companies to invest into.

      For example, the U.S. Commercial Service, part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, helps U.S. companies expand their exports to overseas markets. Around the world, 1,400 Commercial Service officers promote U.S. business interests abroad. In this briefing find out what the company can do to support export objectives in the smart grid space.

      This analyst briefing also will highlight and discuss the opportunities that exist for the US companies within the European smart grid market, including a special offer available to those interested in European Utility Week, the largest and most comprehensive Smart utility event in Europe. About 10,000 visitors and 450 solution providers will do business, network and share best practices in Vienna this year.

    • The Roles of Smart Meters and Energy Gateways The Roles of Smart Meters and Energy Gateways Kaj Ronnlund, CEO, There Corporation; Ossi Porri, Poyry Management Consulting Recorded: Mar 18 2010 1:00 pm UTC 58 mins
    • Traditionally, energy production has been designed to strictly follow demand. Yet there is steadily growing interest in options for managing consumption in the electricity network. In areas with limited transfer capacity, "peak shaving" can avoid overloading the network leading to black outs. There are also situations in which demand exceeds what can be produced in economically and environmentally preferred plants. The growing amount of distributed green power generation will make it more difficult to balance other production since, for example, windmill production may shift rapidly and peak production times seldom match peak demand times. This session discusses the role of the energy gateway in addressing this situation by bringing intelligence to the borders of the grid.

    • Prepay 2011:  The AMI Killer App Prepay 2011: The AMI Killer App Dave Kauffman, Tantalus Systems and Jeff Weiser, PayGo Electric Recorded: Aug 4 2011 3:30 pm UTC 57 mins
    • Join Tantalus Systems and PayGo Electric to learn more about how utilities can use prepay solutions to improve performance.

      Utility companies are becoming increasingly creative with ways to price electricity so that homeowners can find rates that will meet their budgetary needs. Prepaid electricity is one option that is growing in popularity nationwide. Prepaid electricity plans allow homeowners to pay for electricity in advance, and can be a good option for consumers on a strict budget or who are interested in carefully monitoring their energy consumption.

      The key to managing your prepaid electricity is in using the electric meters provided by the utility company. Smart meters allow you to monitor electric use, providing readings multiple times per day.

      Advance pay utility plans can be a helpful tool in getting out of debt, because consumers are able to carefully manage the amount of money being spent for service, and even control the intervals at which they want to pay. When the money in your account runs low, you can make choices to control your spending or choose not to reactivate service until you are ready. Advance pay users spend less on electric service than in traditional programs, largely because consumers are more informed about their usage and reap tangible rewards for reducing use.
