Attending this one-of-a-kind event provides the platform for attendees to network with early adopters and discuss solutions that benefit their plant and organization.

Aaron Larson, executive editor of POWER magazine, said, “As energy systems grow more complex across the power and chemical processing sectors, digital technology improvements and an ever-growing field of applications are reshaping these vital industries. Digitalization is playing a concerted role in providing more insight and flexibility to plant operators and managers, and very often cutting costs for owners through increased efficiency. For the sixth year in a row at the Connected Plant Conference, attendees will learn key information about the trends and possibilities, and gain an understanding of how to implement solutions to improve plant performance. We are thrilled that one of the largest and most progressive utilities in our industry, Southern Company, is supporting the Connected Plant Conference as the Host Utility Partner.”

The technology innovation we and our partners are delivering today is key to a clean, safe, reliable, affordable and resilient energy future,” said Allen Reaves, Southern Company Senior Vice President and Senior Production Officer – East.

POWER, Chemical Engineering, and the Connected Plant Conference Advisory Board are hard at work bringing vital content to the conference that will not only expose attendees to the latest technology and opportunities but also provide a space for open communication amongst peers from around the world. To complement the conference portion of the event, attendees will also have the opportunity to meet with vendors in the Digital Arena and discuss challenges within their specific plants—coming away with a firm grasp on the new digital operating environment and available solutions. The Digital Arena is well-known as a venue where deals get done.
