Utility Horizons Portal » ABOUT


Experience the 100% Solution!

utilityhorizons.com was created as a Web portal for utility automation and information technology professionals. It is a place where users, suppliers, consultants and various third-party participants go to stay abreast of the latest in utility automation technology, products, systems and services across all three of the primary utility market verticals: Electric, Gas and Water. There are several unique aspects of utilityhorizons.com that have been pioneered with this new approach. These include:

  • 100% Forward Facing: To go forward we must look forward — no ‘case history’ articles here!
  • 100% Utility Focused: Targeted specifically for middle- and upper-level utility managers in search of innovative solutions to meet new and emerging strategic challenges
  • 100% Automation Centric: Providing answers to the automation/IT challenges of a changing utility environment characterized by an aging workforce and declining infrastructure
  • 100% Digital Format: An entirely new kind of resource for a digital world, the best of automation/IT innovation and education can be found here — in 100% digital format!

New for 2015

Starting in 2015 you will see a major convergence of e-publishing with e-resources under the umbrella of the utilityhorizons.com portal. The first step in this transition was the extension of the EVENTualities Events Calendar from our utility horizons e-zine to the utility horizons website with the help of event socialization software from PointView®. Now, seamless linkage between the e-zine and the portal give utility automation professionals an online event resource that is timely, focused and accurate 24/7/365. Watch for more additions and improvements throughout the year!
