Utilities Technology Council (UTC)
EVENT PARTNER
Tabletop #20

 

The Utilities Technology Council (UTC) is a global association focused on the intersection of telecommunications and utility infrastructure. UTC gives voice to the men and women in the utility workforce who create and maintain critical communications systems that help keep the lights and the water flowing. We represent the hands-on folks in the field and control rooms responding to storms, deploying new technologies, and securing energy and water infrastructure from all kinds of threats. UTC sits at the nexus between the energy and telecommunications industries, which are rapidly converging and becoming more interdependent.

Embedded throughout utilities’ critical equipment is a series of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) networks providing utilities with greater control, protection and situational awareness over their infrastructure. These networks are so embedded into the grid that they are nearly as important to reliability as the electricity which flows through the lines. Most utilities in the U.S. and Canada deploy some form of their own “private” ICT networks alongside the towers, lines, poles, and meters that make up their infrastructure. ICT networks are critical for day-to-day operational reliability, efficiency, resilience, storm response/recovery, cybersecurity, modernization, situational awareness, and the integration of distributed resources. Not only are these networks essential for the daily task of delivering electricity, as demands for utilities change, ICT networks are the key to Utility 2.0—likely a more decentralized, efficient, cleaner industry giving consumers more control over their usage.

Through advocacy, education and collaboration, UTC creates a favorable business, regulatory and technological environment for organizations that own, manage or provide critical utility telecommunications systems.

What Broadband Leaders Are Saying

"Telehealth is a game-changer for rural veterans. It breaks through the barriers of cost, time and distance. Bringing rehabilitation services to the veteran's living room can connect patients with the care they might otherwise struggle to receive."

Thomas Klobucar, PhD

Executive Director, Office of Rural Health, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs

"The bottom line: no internet, no business." 

Rep. Peter Welch

(D-Vt.)

“One of the top issues I hear about is the need to bring fast, reliable internet to our rural areas. For education, for jobs, for medicine, broadband is really essential to helping rural communities thrive today.”

Sen. Ron Wyden

(D-Ore.)

“Broadband connectivity has become vital in our 21st century economy…. Accurate broadband availability maps are essential for us to evaluate who has access and who does not.”

Sen. Shelley Moore Capito

(R-W.Va.), Co-chair Senate Broadband Caucus

“I believe the future belongs to the connected. No matter who you are or where you live in this country, you need access to modern communications to have a fair shot at 21st century success.”

Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel

Federal Communications Commission

“As we rely more on technology in our everyday lives, we have to make sure that every family has access to broadband, regardless of their zip code.”

Sen. Amy Klobuchar

(D-Minn.), Co-chair Senate Broadband Caucus

“I strongly believe that in 2019, we shouldn’t be a country of haves and have-nots when it comes to using the internet… Congress can and should help states, counties, tribes and others do more to close the growing digital divide… it’s the right thing to do.”

Sen. Patty Murray

(D-Wash.)

“We are leaving thousands of people on the sidelines. Significant human capital and economic development suffer without access to high-speed internet.”

Rep. Rob Wittman

(R-Va.), Co-chair Rural Broadband Caucus

“If we don’t act to connect all of America to the internet, we will absolutely be left behind.”

Jannine Miller

former Senior Advisor for Rural Infrastructure, USDA

“Broadband access is not a luxury. It is a necessity equal to roads, bridges and other critical infrastructure. Access to the internet expands economic and social opportunities for commerce and strengthens our economy.”

Sen. Angus King

(I-Maine)

“The internet is a powerful tool that has become instrumental in economic and social mobility and civic engagement.”

Sen. Mazie K. Hirono

(D-Hawaii)
