One great strength of the annual DistribuTECH conference and trade show is that it brings together major energy industry players (utilities and OEMs), and the tech startups and research labs that often drive innovation. Siemens operates Technology to Business Centers around the world, to foster collaboration among all these players and spur smart grid development.
Debjit Mukerji, Director of Venture Technology at Siemens TTB, explains, "TTB is a great way to engage with Siemens, and to get an early glimpse into what startup companies are doing in this space."
Proof-of-concept projects are an important way that TTB helps drive utility industry innovation through collaboration.
