PLMA is the Voice of Demand Response Practitioners

The Peak Load Management Alliance (PLMA) was founded in 1999 as the national voice of demand response practitioners. It is a non-profit organization dedicated to provide resources and advocacy towards critical energy management initiatives. We are a community of experts applying our knowledge and skills to address the challenges and opportunities in our rapidly changing energy landscape. PLMA members share expertise to educate each other and explore innovative approaches to demand response programs, price and rate response, regional regulatory issues, and technologies as the energy markets evolve. PLMA does no lobbying, but serves as an information source to practitioners and regulatory agencies. Membership in PLMA is open to any organization interested in demand response. PLMA represents a broad range of energy professionals and industries – private and publicly owned utilities, technology companies, energy providers, curtailment service providers, meter and equipment suppliers, system integrators, research organizations, consultants, and consumers.
