Defining the Value of Drone Technology at Scale in Energy & Utilities
Talk about the potential value of drone technology has driven interest and investment for many years now. While the drone industry is arguably beyond this hype phase, the reality of how and where it can create value is something that many are still trying to define in terms of application and ROI. Multiple presentations during the Energy & Utilities track of Amsterdam Drone Week laid out what these applications look like, how ROI can be measured and much more.
