Swedish Innovation and the California Smart Grid Revolution

Join Business Sweden at this exciting seminar that will facilitate discussion between key Swedish and U.S. players in Smart Grids – listen as our speakers provide their take on best practices and developments in the sector, and build your own global Smart Grids network

The state of California is investing billions of dollars in upgrading California’s electric grid into a modern system that is clean, and efficient, while a new cluster of smart grid component, application, and consulting companies has emerged in Silicon Valley. Sweden has long been a global leader in smart grid metering and implementation, and has long been one of the most efficient users of electricity per capita in the world.

This seminar will provide a fascinating discussion and knowledge exchange through speaker presentations and panel discussions, with a focus on business models, consumer engagement, and the latest trends in smart grid technology.

Following the seminar, there will be a networking reception with light refreshments.
