I’m headed for San Diego tomorrow morning to attend #DistribuTECH. I have an action packed schedule of meetings with some of the most interesting companies, and a few old friends in the industry. It’s amazing that #DistribuTECH has continually reinvented itself over the years, it seems like yesterday that I was in Palm Springs for one of the first conferences in 1994, then called #DADSM, for Distribution Automation and Demand Side Management. Every time I walk in the doors, I expect to see #Itron right up front and center, and this year expect to see some of the emerging #bigdata analytics companies like #SpaceTimeInsight moving up there to the first row. I’ll be walking the floor, looking to talk to old friends, and new emerging companies poised to change the landscape of the #SmartGrid, #DemandResponse, #DistributedGeneration, and #BatteryStorage. See you there!
