PA Consulting Group’s Philippe Tellier, an energy expert, is quoted in an article in The Washington Post. Philippe shares his views on the benefits of wearable technology in smart grids.

According to the article, technology makes our lives easier. Whether it’s a simple technology like the wheel, or a complex technology like a combustible engine, there’s no argument that having the ability to go from point A to point B is more efficient with wheels than with legs. But what about wearable technology? How will wearables affect us? Our cities? Industry? Will wearable technology alter our evolution?
