Smart Grid, Beyond the Grid
What is the status of Smart Grid revolution to date? Are we still talking to early adopters? How about consumers, and utilities themselves? How and when will we be delivering value to the mass market? What is the likely end scenario once Smart Grid is implemented, and how are the new 21st electricity consumers going to think about their energy supply? Perhaps the most interesting question is how are we going to make all of this happen when we are somewhat shackled by the success of the past 100 years of electricity?
Geoffrey Moore, author and Mohr Davidow Venture Partner, will address the relevance of “crossing the chasm” to the Smart Grid and why we must create a compelling Smart Grid narrative and new business models that overcome the pull of the past.
