Smart Metering Conference and Exposition for Utility Industry Takes Place Sept. 13 to 16

Chicago, IL - Utilimetrics, the trade association for smart metering and innovative technologies, announces the dates for Autovation 2009, the organization's international conference and exposition.

Autovation, the only conference focused entirely on smart metering, communications, automation and data management, will take place September 13 to 16, at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado.

The Obama administration has elevated the significant role that the smart grid and other innovative technologies must play in the utility industry, says Utilimetrics CEO Joel Hoiland, but many in our industry lack the resources and knowledge for deployment. Autovation brings together the utility community to share research, best practices, and provide the most current information on investing in, deploying and delivering these emerging technologies to consumers, he adds.

Autovation will feature in-depth sessions focusing on a wide range of issues including deployment strategies, real-world lessons on contract negotiation, deployment, project management, security, power outage management, and interoperability.

The keynote speaker for the event will be Dan Burrus. Burrus is one of the worlds leading technology forecastersand business strategists and is the author of six books, including the highly acclaimed Technotrends, which has been translated into more than a dozen languages.
