The Smart Grid Revolution

April 21, 2010
5:15 PM - 8:30 PM

The Courtyard on St. James (near San Felipe @ Yorktown)
1885 St. James Place
Houston, TX

Ready or not, a step-function change is underway in the manner by which electricity delivery will be monitored and billed. New technology will provide the opportunity to better promote energy conservation, balance demand, and restore essential services following major disruptions such as hurricanes. Dramatic change such as this represents opportunities to entrepreneurs and established businesses of all types, but also has impact that casual users should understand.

To help bring clarity to this changing landscape, we've assembled an all-star panel. Our moderator will be Bob Frazier, Director of Technology at CenterPoint Energy; amongst his many other credentials, Bob serves on several of the committees that have set the standards and governance for smart grid adoption in our region.

Bob will be joined by UofH's David Francis, Director of the Texas Institute for Measurement, Evaluation and Statistics and Scott Burns, Manager of Smart Energy Product Management at Reliant Energy.

Important advances in technology demand the kind of illumination that only the MIT Enterprise Forum can deliver - we look forward to see you at this insightful presentation.

Advance Registration is highly Recommended
