Tackling the Smart Grid Value Challenge:
Managing Utility and Industry Complexity

The utility industry is facing complexity on two levels. The external complexities of a changing energy industry -- including policy uncertainty and the falling price of natural gas -- as well as the internal complexities of managing their own Smart Grid systems -- complete with a broader system view, big data, and cyber security challenges.

Today’s utility professionals are buried in the day-to-day challenges of managing new Smart Grid systems, while evaluating Smart Grid’s future amidst changing industry dynamics.

GridWeek will explore how -- despite complexity -- utilities can derive value from: (1) existing Smart Grid systems and (2) future Smart Grid investments.  These issues will be explored in tracks dedicated to:

  • Big drivers, including global and industry challenges and opportunities
  • Utility business, including intra-utility challenges, such as value creation, new business models, and managing system complexity
  • Showcase, providing a closeup view of Smart Grid progress to date

International Audience Adds Perspective

Connecting U.S. Solution Providers with Global Customers

As utilities grapple with new industry and utility challenges, GridWeek is gathering the largest-to-date delegation of international Smart Grid experts in 2012 as part of the Department of Commerce (DOC) International Buyer Program (IBP). The international delegation at GridWeek will:

  • Offer insights and lessons learned from global deployments that have overcome similar complexities -- with at least one non-U.S. participant on each GridWeek panel.
  • Include international utility buyers looking to understand U.S. technologies and best practices.
  • Provide opportunities for global networking and relationship building.

Issues with iOS 6 & iPhone 5

In the recent update of Apple's mobile OS, Apple has made a change that has significantly degraded the functionality of PointView Mobile app. You will notice the following:

  • The app will not refresh lists for some time, as Safari has changed the way it handles the cache.
  • If you Connect with someone using Bump, Scan or Code, the connection is made correctly, though not displayed on your relationship page.
  • You will also have problems if you logout on the Mobile app. We suggest you do not logout.
  • This problem is also on the iPad running either the app or the Safari browser.

Unfortunately, PointView has not found a quick workaround to these issues and is working to resolve the issue. We apologize for any inconvenience.
