DistribuTECH 2016: Security, IoT, Mobility, and Ice Cream

DistribuTech Logo

The largest US conference that covers the utility industry from end to end is heading south to Orlando February 9 to 11. With topics ranging from automation and control systems to energy efficiency and demand response, DistribuTECH promises something for everyone.

Intel will be on hand in booth 1055 with information and insight on how new technologies can pave the way for a smarter, safer, more efficient grid that drives business transformation in the energy industry. Stop by our booth to see these live demonstrations on security, grid management, and an Internet of Things (IoT) platform for demand response and energy efficiency:

  • Intel® Security – Critical Infrastructure Protection See how to secure the smart grid synchrophasor devices handling the C37.118 traffic.
  • Intel® Intelligent Secondary Substation – The IoT Platform for Large-Scale Distributed Generation Learn how the Intel® IoT Platform enables CapEx and OpEx efficiency while increasing security through predictive analysis essential for planning and responding to energy trends.
  • Smart Building Analytics – An IOT Platform for DR/EE Hear from SAS and Intel on how to gain more insight from residential and commercial buildings by collecting real-time data from sensors connected to an Intel® IoT Gateway, and why buildings are hidden gems for both energy efficiency (EE) and demand response (DR) programs.

Enhancing Mobile Field Workers

Just prior to DistribuTECH, Intel will be introducing an exclusive look at how one of the world’s largest wind energy companies is using Microsoft Surface Pro mobile technology built on Intel architecture to streamline the workflow of its field workers and reduce overall costs. Watch for this debut on the Grid Insights blog. You can also enter for a chance to win a Microsoft Surface tablet by participating in our Twitter contest during DistribuTECH. See details on our Twitter channel, @Gridinsights.

Finally, come join us for a refreshing, hand-dipped scoop of ice cream in the Intel booth during the exhibition to beat the Orlando heat and take a break from walking the tradeshow floor.

We’re looking forward to seeing you in Orlando and fostering conversation about the future of smart grid technology. Follow us on Twitter at @GridInsights for live updates.
