Providing a peek into the future, Itron showcased its vision of what it may be like to live in a city of the future from a consumer standpoint at the biggest consumer electronics show: CES. The show hosted thought leaders like Deloitte, Panasonic and the U.S. Department of Energy. More than 180,000 attendees came together to enjoy over 4,000 exhibitors demonstrating everything from companion robots to virtual reality.

As a supporting sponsor for the event, Itron hosted a dedicated smart cities marketplace and exhibition for the first time, demonstrating Itron’s global leadership in smart grid deployment. Helping utilities and cities manage resources more efficiently, Itron’s OpenWay® Riva solution provides a platform to support numerous devices and use cases.

Tim Wolf, director of marketing and communications, participated in a panel hosted by Deloitte called Energy Consumption & Distribution in Smart Cities. More than 300 people attended the panel, which was also livestreamed on CES’s website. Wolf also spoke about Itron’s solutions in a CES smart cities highlight video.

Itron was proud to demonstrate and support energy-saving, smart technologies that will enhance safety and convenience for citizens in connected cities. Built on the Itron® Riva network, these technologies demonstrate how a modern, urban infrastructure can leverage our technology to provide interoperability across key services provided.
