2023 Summer Symposium

Thought leaders from the emerging utility I&I (Imagery & Inspection) space gathered on June 20-21, 2023, at the Avista headquarters in Spokane, WA, attendees gained valuable insights from workshops, collaborated with their industry peers, and even got a hands-on drone demo that was sponsored by DJI.

Sprinkled into the agenda were keynote sessions with Avista on how operations and technology are using imagery from their infrastructure to make key business decisions.

Highlights include:

  • Charlotte Dewey of the National Weather Service (NOAA) led a discussion on how the NWS and utilities can collaborate in the I&I Space
  • Utility leaders Avista, SDGE, So Cal Edison, Eversource, Xcel and more share how they are becoming the catalyst in the I&I Space
