Former CEO of Siemens Energy & Automation and of International Battery, Dennis Sadlowski, will be a featured panelist at DNV KEMA Energy & Sustainability’s fifth annual Utility of the Future Leadership Forum, “Pathway to excellence.” Sadlowski will participate in the panel, “Sustainable Power Supply,” during the DNV KEMA forum, May 14–16, 2012, at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, DC.
Sadlowski has broad experience in cross-continent management of energy and construction markets. He will draw on years of market, financial and energy expertise to provide insight to the panel in discussing the future of smart grid technology and sustainability.
Sadlowski said the conference will be a significant opportunity to discuss the impacts of technology on sustainable power supply, stating, “Technology is an accelerating driver of change in the power and electric markets. From renewables and other clean power generation, to reliability and efficiency of the smart grid, a clear path for integration of new technologies is increasingly important for industry leadership."
The 2012 Utility of the Future Leadership Forum features one and one-half days of discussions about the dynamic changes facing the utility industry and the paths that innovators have taken toward a sustainable energy future. Two CEO panels will explore the challenges of building the future utility in very different economic environments, while other panels will feature topics such as customers at the helm, innovation and the future, and engaging customers in sustainability. Throughout the forum, there will be high-level networking opportunities to share perspectives, collaborate, and engage in dialog.
Senior executives are invited to join their peers in the Utility of the Future discussion to share ideas and discover opportunities that can help shape a more sustainable, reliable, and profitable utility of the future. Register and learn more about the 2012 Utility of the Future Leadership Forum.
