The Utilities Industry is poised for extraordinary change in the years ahead and that what has served the industry well in the past won’t be sufficient for remaining competitive in the future.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 20, 2014
October 20th; Global Futurist Jack Uldrich will deliver his presentation, "Breakthrough: Ten Technological Trends Transforming Tomorrow" for ABB/Thomas & Betts New Product Launch in Atlanta, Georgia. The product launch of the Emax 2 kicked off in Hollywood, CA., on October 13th and will end in New York, NY., on October 29th.
When it comes to utilities ABB is on the cutting edge. "The newly launched SACE Emax 2 air circuit-breakers up to 6300A have been designed to increase efficiency in all installations: from industrial and naval applications to traditional and renewable power generation installations, buildings, data centers and shopping centers."
"The exclusive Power Controller function available on the new SACE Emax 2 circuit-breakers monitors the power managed by the circuit-breaker, keeping it below the limit set by the user. As a result of this more effective use, the peak of power consumed can be limited allowing savings on electricity bill. The Power Controller, patented by ABB, disconnects non-priority utilities, such as, electric car charging stations, during the times when consumption limits need to be respected, and connects them again as soon as it is appropriate. When required, it automatically activates auxiliary power supplies such as generator sets."
ABB's keynotes for the Emax2 product launches will be delivered by Jack Uldrich, a renowned global futurist and sought-after business speaker. Uldrich's aim is to set the tone for an “out-of-the-box” approach to each event. A best-selling author, Uldrich is often called upon to speak on future trends, emerging technologies, innovations, change management and leadership. Hailed as the “Chief Unlearning Officer” of “The School of Unlearning," he has made it his personal goal is to help organizations succeed tomorrow by unlearning today. With ABB/Thomas & Betts Uldrich will address ten key breakthroughs that will be transforming the world of tomorrow.
"The Utilities industry is poised for extraordinary change in the years ahead and that what has served the industry well in the past won’t be sufficient for remaining competitive in the future," says Uldrich. A few of the trends he will touch on will be High Power Circuit breakers, like the one ABB is introducing, solar windows and micro-grids, Big Data and New Electric Demand Paradigm, Sensor installation and the Internet of Things..
