Internet of Things/Smart Cities

The Internet of Things (IoT) and the Grid of Things (GoT) are rapidly evolving into smart cities. Electric utilities/electricity providers are at the heart of this effort, providing, in many cases, the electric, communications and device infrastructures that form the core ecosystem upon which connected and interoperable devices are built. The sessions in this track looked at some of the technologies and trends that will allow utilities to live in the interconnected world of smart cities that is being created through IoT and GoT.
