Customer Data Value

This event brought together a carefully invited mixture of energy companies, product manufacturers, control companies, service providers and data analytics companies. The format has been designed for a collaborative (in so much as confidentiality allows) format, allowing for flexibility on the formal structure (below) and interests on the day.

Through a carefully prepared mixture of presentations, panel sessions, discussions and workshops we shared, discussed and debated the opportunities for data analytics to create value in the energy sector.
