Scott Smith is the President of Integral Analytics, responsible for the company’s long-term product strategy and overseeing the development of new business opportunities, partnerships, and team growth. Previously, he was director of product development at IA, responsible for the design and build of new software products. Scott started his career with IA as a research analyst and lead software developer for the spatial electric load forecasting and power systems analysis software, LoadSEER.
Recognized for his innovative spirit and dedication to the advancement of technology, Scott’s interest in the energy industry began during an expedition across the Alaskan Arctic tundra, where he helped design and install remote weather stations powered by solar and wind generators (and lots of batteries, of course).
Before joining IA in 2007, Scott built a mobile application used by emergency first responders, to optimize their response time and equity of service given transportation and hydrological network constraints.
