Call to Actions

The Smart City Zone at DISTRIBUTECH is all about building bridges – connecting utilities and cities at the same place and time. Technology advancements are rapidly changing how electric power is produced, distributed, and used. As a result, cities and utilities share more goals in common than in the past, creating both enormous opportunities as well as the need for dialogue. Cities are indispensable partners in the push to decarbonize and electrify – together with our attendees, partners, and committee members, we strive to bring stakeholders together to define priorities, gain insight into technological advancements, and move resilient, smart cities forward!
