Innovations in utility strategy. Perspectives from Duke Energy.
Duke Energy has been at the forefront of redefining utility strategy, management and operations to balance reliability, sustainability and performance objectives. The Chairman and CEO of the Fortune 500 power company will be sharing insight into innovations in utility strategy and into balancing business and technology for sustainable energy supply and delivery at the KEMA Utility of the Future 2010 leadership forum.
Duke Energy is implementing advanced two-way digital communications and renewable and energy efficiency technologies through its industry-leading smart grid program. According to Jim Rogers, Chairman and CEO, Duke Energy, “One of our industry’s top challenges is defining the most efficient and environmentally sound way to meet our customers’ growing demand for electricity over the next 10 to 15 years. Emerging technologies in generation, transmission and distribution, and consumer end use are driving our smarter, more sustainable energy future forward. The challenge today is defining a utility future vision and road map that leverages energy technologies and navigates uncertainties in carbon and environment policies in capital-constrained markets.”
Rogers will be a featured speaker at KEMA’s third annual Utility of the Future Leadership Forum, “Strategic Choices – Striking Equilibrium.” He will join energy and utility industry CEOs in sharing their insights on strategy and challenges to engage customers and achieve a sustainable energy supply at the KEMA event, being held June 23 – 25, 2010 at The Four Seasons, Washington D.C. Rogers will be participating on the utility CEO panel discussing balancing business and technology for sustainable energy supply and delivery.
