SmartEnergy IP™, the leading provider of Smart Grid customer education
solutions, announced today that it has produced a special section on
Smart Grid customer education that appears in this month's issue of Forbes
magazine. The May 26th Global 2000 issue is out on
newsstands this week. The issue follows the highly successful 2014
Smart Grid Customer Education Symposium that took place on April 28th
in New York, New York.
Both the Symposium and the Forbes section focus on the increasing
importance of the utility-customer relationship in today's society, as
utilities seek to modernize the electrical grid and adapt new strategies
and echnologies for engaging customers.
"The upgrading of the electric system has forced many utilities to
rethink the customer experience. New technologies are enabling us all to
reduce load and improve reliability, but at the end of the day we will
have a more sustainable future through a more engaged energy customer,"
said Juliet Shavit, Founder and CEO of SmartEnergy IP. "It is not about
a meter or a piece of hardware. It is about having an informed and
rewarding energy lifestyle. A lower bill is a bonus."
This year's Smart Grid Customer Education Award winners are: Baltimore
Gas and Electric, Delmarva Power, Sacramento Municipal Utility District,
and San Diego Gas & Electric.
For more information about the accomplishments of these utilities and
the importance of Smart Grid customer education, pick up a copy of the
May 26th issue of Forbes magazine or contact
