This year's DistribuTECH, a leading utility industry event focused on power distribution, will cover many hot topics in the global utility industry -- automation and control systems, energy efficiency, demand response, renewable energy integration, smart metering, grid operations and reliability, power delivery equipment, commercial and industrial energy management technology and water utility technology.

Several DistribuTECH sessions will include Siemens experts as speakers. Some have co-authored papers which will be published in the DistribuTECH 2014 proceedings, available to conference attendees.

What are your expectations for DistribuTECH?

Visit the Siemens booth (#1647) to see live demonstrations of how smart grid technology can help utilities address real-world problems, such as how to respond to outages during severe weather. And on Twitter, follow the hashtag #dtech.
