The EPRI ICT Innovators Forum is designed to help accelerate commercialization of next-generation, standards-based information and communication technologies (ICT).
Forum members are vendors and solution providers serving the utility industry. EPRI created the Forum to help these product and service providers gain greater visibility into utility "needs and wants" - technical requirements for products and systems. It was also created so that utilities can gain greater understanding of the "capability landscape" of vendors and solution providers.
A primary activity of the Forum is assessment of utility needs and wants compared to current market offerings. See the material in Resources below for more detailed information.
