Metering, Billing/CRM Latin America is just 4 weeks away and while space is limited there are seats still available!

Continued growth in the demand for power, along with rapidly rising energy prices and the quest for security and sustainability of supply are bringing new challenges to utilities in Latin America. Energy efficiency and demand response, so far largely unexploited in the region, are becoming increasingly important, and there is ongoing need for revenue protection and the reduction of non-technical losses.

Metering, billing and customer management will be crucial in meeting these challenges, while the favorable economic conditions provide a positive investment outlook for new projects.
