SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Market-defining forces and key catalysts of innovation for Smart Grid and Energy2.0 are gathering at ConnectivityWeek from across the U.S., May 22-24 in Santa Clara, Calif., for the most action-packed conference yet.
"As information and communication technology continues its rapid evolution, and as rising energy costs lead to customer demand for more information and control, the Energy 2.0 market is inevitable," said Anto Budiardjo, President of Clasma Events. "At ConnectivityWeek, we will bring the key stakeholders -- who bridge energy supply, energy demand, and technology -- together to define this market."
From announcements of the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Apps for Energy contest winners, to the first Green Button-focused Cleanweb Hackathon and the demand-side Plug-In, ConnectivityWeek is gathering the people defining a new market -- including more than 100 industry-leading speakers.
Only ConnectivityWeek will provide attendees with access to the complete diversity of Energy 2.0 stakeholders:
