The event is expected to draw more than 700 attendees and is the first event of its kind to connect and support efforts to grow Ohio's advanced energy industry. The conference will feature best practices in advanced energy innovation, insight into emerging industry trends, informative sessions with industry leaders, and exhibits.
"Ohio recognizes that a diverse energy portfolio is key to the state's future," said Michelle Murcia, executive director of Advanced Energy Economy Ohio. "This conference will highlight the depth and breadth of advanced energy assets within the state and provide an opportunity to build on those assets to make Ohio even more competitive in the advanced energy industry."
Skycasters supports energy exploration by delivering mobile and portable satellite communications that provide the fast, reliable Internet connection needed for SCADA monitoring, VoIP calls, and fax service. The company's 20 x 20 booth is the largest at the show and will display the versatile Mobile Satellite Trailer (MST), the compact and convenient SkyPortable Flyaway, and its most popular satellite dish, a 1.2m fixed unit.
"We know that in the energy industry, productivity is everything. Locations change frequently and the conditions are challenging," said Skycasters President, Mike Kister. "That's why we have engineered units that are rugged and easy to set up, even by untrained personnel. A hot spot can be set up in a matter of minutes for a reliable, secure satellite connection to the Internet that won't go down when the local infrastructure fails. We deliver exactly what the energy exploration industry needs to keep profitability high and problems low."
