Fortnightly Smartest Communities: IllumiNation Energy Summit



Fortnightly Magazine - July 2019

It was quite a show, the IllumiNation Energy Summit in Columbus. 

AEP, Battelle, Ohio State University and Smart Columbus took over a chunk of the cavernous Columbus convention center for a couple of days in May. 

Aside from hearing from panels of experts talking electrification, attendees from across the industry could take the Home & Mobility Tour and the Advanced Energy Applications Tour. They checked out the latest from ABB, ChargePoint, GE, Honda, Itron, Lockheed, Siemens, etc., and took the tours through engaging exhibits in this theme park of electricity's future.
