We are at the dawn of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, defined by its velocity and volume, scope and scale, and systems impact. The foundation of this new era is squarely built upon the success of the "digital grid." The first three revolutions—defined by the introduction of steam and mechanization, electricity and computing, respectively—all had profound societal impacts, but they lacked the exponential rate of technological breakthroughs and complexity that define the fourth.
Decision makers from business, industry and government today are seeking integrated energy solutions — solutions which assure both a secure and affordable energy supply to meet today's and tomorrow's needs, and effective management of energy and overall operational costs. At GlobalCon this week, we’re sharing how companies can meet these goals in an era where renewables seem to be the go-to solution for many.

Prepay energy services have emerged as a viable alternative to traditional utility services, with notable benefits for both the utility and the customer.
The concept of prepay, even in the utility space, is not new. Historically, these solutions have been viewed as very utility-centric by nature, focused on solving very specific challenges that were seen as problematic or negative. It was challenging for customers to keep track of their balances, and they had to put forth a relatively high level of effort to make payments and recharge their accounts. The result is that prepay was seen as complex and cumbersome.
