Our guest this week is Kumi Premathilake from Aclara and we talk with her about vision: the vision of the energy industry’s future, the vision to see trends on an enterprise level, and our own personal visions of utility futures we would like to see and be a part of. Kumi also gives helpful tips for building and sticking to roadmaps to achieve these visions.

We also discuss how planning for the energy future differs from region to region and what level of globalism we should apply to our models for innovation. Then we wrap up with a thought experiment where we sit the industry down and talk some sense into it.
