Distributech 2018

This week our MD Rob Sunderland is attending this year’s Distributech conference and exhibition in San Antonio Texas, spearheading our expansion into the US market.

The conference brings together industry leaders from utilities product and service providers from all over the world, giving opportunities to network, to learn and share knowledge.  Last year the the event had over 13,500 attendees from 77 countries and included representatives from 326 Utilities companies worldwide, with 520+ companies filling the exhibition hall with information, products and services related to electricity delivery automation and control systems, energy efficiency, demand response, renewable energy integration, advanced metering, T&D system operation and reliability, communications technologies, cyber security, water utility technology and more.

Rob is out there to represent Digital Engineering to see how our unique skillset can help power distribution companies over in the US, and beyond.  There is a whole section of the conference dedicated to T&D asset management, and how utilities are aiming to optimise their maintenance spend by moving from reactive to proactive management, and that where we come in.  If our models saved £20m for the National Grid here in the UK, just imagine what we could do on those endless stretches of transmission lines across the US!

If you are attending Distributech and would like to catch up with Rob, please drop us a line here at the office on, or call (0044) 0117 2140405.
