Energy & Utilities: Inspection Insights and End User Perspectives

Sep 06 2023

11:00 AM - 12:30 PM PDT

Room 306

The past several pandemic years have seen a significant increase in the use of drones in infrastructure operations as energy companies everywhere sought to maintain assets while keeping their workforces safe. The resulting momentum and cross-learnings have benefited our entire industry while also propelling us to the next stage of growth that raises new questions and challenges. 

Our critical infrastructure program will be comprised of two in-depth segments that feature leaders from across the Energy & Utilities sector. They’ll showcase their collective vision for the continued impact of drones in our nation’s critical infrastructure networks as well as their efforts to better enable the continued intersection of data and analytics with their scaling drone programs.

Energy & Utilities – Inspection Insights

The first part will feature a series of case studies from leading infrastructure companies across the nation. Presenters will share specific insights related to the missions and projects they’ve completed in the past year. These industry leaders will also share exclusive footage and data points highlighting how their programs have served a crucial and growing role. 

Case studies presented by Teena Deering, Rohit Gohil, Jake Lahmann and Stanley McHann.

Energy & Utilities – End User Perspectives

In the second part, a panel of infrastructure industry leaders will come together to talk through everything from their biggest challenges to how they quantify their ROI of their drone programs. From onboard AI to back-end integration, these leaders will discuss how they are defining the future potential of drones for increased safety, efficiency, and data-driven decisions across all critical infrastructure operations.
