Continue the DTECH conversation at Omicron’s Recloser and Distribution Automation Workshop

I just returned from DistribuTECH in New Orleans and as usual, I came home with all kinds of practical information relating to our industry. Having attended DistribuTECH for nearly 20 years, I'm always impressed with the vast amount of presentations made on distribution automation, data analytics, asset management, DER's, grid resiliency, smart cities, and microgrids. The wild card in our industry currently seems to be energy storage. The amount of exhibitors and presentations on this subject seems to grown each year. Utilities have had to reinvent themselves. Remember when utility customers were referred to as "ratepayers" and they paid their monthly "light bill"? Times have indeed changed! One thing that hason't changed is DistribuTECH's commitment to technical topics and information that you can immediately implement at your utility. I can hardly wait till 2020 when DTECH goes back to San Antonio.
