Intelligent Utilities: the Missing Link to Smart Cities

The smart city vision requires an engagement platform that connects people and dynamic, personalized information. Disparate smart initiatives will repeatedly bear the cost of driving users to adopt proprietary interfaces. They are missing a compelling reason to engage and consume information. Trusted utility providers can be the bridge between millions of households and businesses and their local governments. While people may engage with their cities once or twice a year, they engage with their utility companies monthly or more. Utility companies hold established community networks, data-rich infrastructure, and the means to innovate quickly and scale new tech—all crucial to a meaningful smart city movement.
