DRRC to Sponsor Demand Response Town Meeting; Joins other Californians as speakers
California will be well-represented among the participants at the upcoming National Town Meeting on Demand Response to be held in Washington, DC on June 2-3.
The DRRC will once again be a sponsor of the Town Meeting. Roger Levy, consultant to the DRRC, will be chairing a panel on June 3rd entitled “Taking Demand Response Beyond the Pilots – Best Practices and Design Principles”. Roger’s presentation will highlight DRRC progress to establish a national standard based on the data model from their highly successful AutoDR research. This panel will also highlight “lessons learned” from recently completed pilots conducted by PSE&G and PNNL.
Chairman Michael Peevey of the CPUC will be addressing participants at the Town Meeting. Also, representatives from SCE, PG&E and SDG&E are scheduled to give presentations on their latest demand response efforts.
More information and online registration is
available at www.demandresponsetownmeeting.com.
As in the past, participants at the Town Meeting will include federal and state policy makers, executives and managers of demand response from utilities, technology company executives, stakeholders and numerous experts and researchers who specialize in demand response. The event provides an opportunity for those already knowledgeable about demand response to exchange information with other demand response professionals from around the country. At the same time, the event is designed to allow those who are seeking to learn about demand response to get all of the information they need about the latest state of demand response programs, policies and technologies.
DOE also believes that the large amount of time devoted to roundtable discussion among participants makes the Town Meeting an important opportunity for stakeholder input into emerging demand response policies and business developments. Also, with the inclusion in the recently enacted Energy Independence Act of 2007 of a requirement that a National Action Plan on Demand Response be developed and implemented, we see the 2008 Town Meeting as an important vehicle for guiding that new effort.
