“Last week at a conference, Dr. Stephen Pratt, Chief Technical Officer for CenterPoint Energy, stated the following during an interview:

‘We have an entire organization that’s gotten behind data as an asset

‘We get a lot of data.  We do 221,000,000 meter reads a day …

‘We can do nothing with that data, or we can mine that data and use what we find from mining that data …

‘That is very exciting to me today.'”
