You will not want to miss keynote speaker Gregory Bolino as he kicks off this year’s conference with a special Opening Session presentation – Utility of the Future: Defining a Business Model for Growth.

As customers adopt new innovative technologies, the utility industry will continue to undergo dramatic changes. New models emerging around the world demonstrate the economic and social value of transforming the energy system, enabled by customer-focused technologies and closer
integration of distributed energy and alternatives such as storage.

An emerging new model can help achieve these goals and provide greater growth and value to the industry. Gain insights on the issues and challenges of this transition which requires both a new regulatory framework and new thinking on how to best approach the grid and investment.

Currently Managing Director, Utilities Strategies North America for Accenture, Gregory has more than 30 years experience helping companies in the utilities, telecommunications, cable and retail sectors transform their businesses to enable growth. He has worked extensively with utilities in North America and Europe and has published numerous perspectives on the changing utility model, including The High Stakes of Low Carbon and Capital Theft: Stealing the Utility Business Model.
