HISTORY OF THE SMART UTILITY SUMMIT 

Established in 2018, the Smart Utility Summit (SUS) is the happy result of combining our Municipal Smart Grid Summit for electric public power utilities and our Rural Smart Grid Summit for electric cooperatives, with the addition of electric investor-owned utilities.

Following the success of the inaugural Rural Smart Grid Summit in 2010, the Municipal Smart Grid Summit was launched in 2011. Both brought vendor partners together with Public Power Utilities and Electric Cooperative Utilities – in an intimate setting conducive to introducing technology and services for updating the North American Electric Utility Infrastructure.

SUS collaborates with industry-leading Vendors, associations, and research firms to create successful events year after year. Our staff is comprised of senior-level professionals who bring a combined 50+ years of experience to each Summit, focusing on industry trends and needs not addressed at traditional trade shows or industry events.

Past Summit Attendees and Vendors attest to the high bar SUS has set for those in the Smart Utility Industry.
