Smart Grid Heavy Hitter series – SAP’s Stefan Engelhardt

In this, the second of my Smart Grid Heavy Hitters’ interviews, I talk to SAP’s Head of Industry Business Unit for Utilities, Stefan Engelhardt.

It was a great interview – in it we talked about:

  • Stefan’s definition of a Smart Grid
  • The benefits of Smart Grids to both the utilities and the customers of the utilities
  • The state of Smart Grid rollouts to-date
  • What an ideal Smart Grid would look like
  • What barriers are holding up Smart Grid rollouts
  • Which regions are further along in Smart Grid rollouts and which are lagging behind
