A new future is on the horizon. 5G will enable step changes across industries such as industrial automation, healthcare, energy, transportation, and financial services in ways that were previously unfathomable. Within the energy industry, 5G has the potential to serve as a foundational element of a more efficient smart grid and energy cloud future.

At the 5G Studio, created by Newlab in collaboration with Verizon, innovative companies are building and testing applications that will lead this transformation.

Join us on Thursday, April 15 from noon – 1 pm ET for a moderated conversation focused on exploring the possibilities of 5G in reimagining the energy equation through smart Distributed Energy Resources and new and flexible energy ecosystems.
