Next week, the natural gas industry will convene in Orlando for the American Gas Association Operations Conference to share knowledge, ideas and practices for safe, efficient and reliable delivery of gas.

In the Itron booth (#601) this year, we will be demonstrating ways we are bringing intelligence to utilities, including new ways to enhance safety and perform maintenance more efficiently. I invite you to come and see hands-on demos of how we are improving system integrity with our gas quality, cathodic protection and pressure management solutions.

In addition to our latest technology and solutions, our booth will also feature key partners who are bringing new capabilities to our OpenWay Riva™ solution , as well as innovations from Itron Idea Labs. The objective of Itron Idea Labs is to discover new opportunities for effective energy management utilizing Itron Riva™ technology. Stop by to learn how Itron Idea Labs accelerates innovation by engaging with our customers early and often, delivering new and strategic solutions at a transformative pace.

Look for my article in the upcoming issue of American Gas to learn more about the gas utility of the future.
