HOUSTON, TX (PRWEB) March 14, 2016
The organizers of the ELECTRIC POWER Conference & Exhibition announced today that Scott Bolick, the Head of Software Strategy and Product Management for GE Power, will address attendees during the opening keynote session of ELECTRIC POWER, which takes place April 18-21, 2016, at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.
The keynote address, titled “The Digital Transformation of Electricity”, will cover the dynamic transformation that’s under way across the entire energy value chain to meet the 50 percent increase in global power demand that’s expected by 2025. Inexpensive sensors and big data, coupled with advancements in analytics and integrated software intelligence into hardware assets and control systems enable new and existing power generation, grid, and power consumption assets to operate at much higher levels of performance and operational effectiveness in order to drive smarter economic outcomes.
Keynote attendees will hear insight on the future of energy, discover game-changing innovations, and learn how to maximize opportunities across both business and operations.
“There is no one more fitting for this year’s keynote than Mr. Bolick, an experienced strategist with a fresh perspective on the dynamic change currently taking place in power generation,” said Jamie Reesby, Show Director. “This keynote by GE Power Digital ensures that ELECTRIC POWER will feature content and facilitate discussions at a level that the power industry just won’t find at other events.”
