Peter Floyd gave the opening remarks at this program sponsored by the Southeastern Energy Society and hosted in Alston & Bird's Atlanta office.
For years, the relationship between the consumer and their utility provider has been simple – the utility provided reliable service and billed the customer for what they used in any given billing period. Generally, consumers paid their bills and that was the end of the story. Now, with two-way communication and the accessibility of real-time information made possible with smart grid technologies, these relationships have started to change. Attendees gained insights into factors that motivate consumer engagement around the smart grid as well as consumer values and attitudes around energy.
