This week, SmartPower’s Chief Operating Officer Toni Bouchard has been serving as an “Expert Faculty Member” at the E-Lab Accelerator workshop in Sundance, Utah. As they say, this is a “bootcamp for electricity innovation.” As such Toni has been working with some of the greatest minds in the country trying to work out the details of some of the most innovative projects in energy distribution.
Toni brings SmartPower’s perspective from the front lines — representing the communities, customers and stakeholders we work for across the country in all our energy efficiency and renewable energy work. The group has spent the week focusing on new utility business models, electricity pricing structures, and regulatory reform efforts focused on distributed energy resource; energy innovation districts like demonstration projects, downtown clean energy zones, and other localized projects. And of course, new customer solutions — including customer engagement programs, innovative financing and strategies for low-income populations.
But don’t worry, we’re pretty sure that Toni figured out how to get in a run or two on the slopes.
And to be sure, we’re proud to have SmartPower right there in the front lines working on these solutions.
