View 34th Conference highlights from Delray Beach below.

PLMA seeks  general and breakout session presentation proposals for the 35th PLMA Conference set for April 3-5, 2017 in Nashville, Tennessee. PLMA is searching for exceptional perspectives that explore best practices and cutting-edge issues affecting professionals who develop, implement, and evaluate demand response initiatives.

Topics related to the following Interest Groups are especially encouraged if they have a specific, actionable tie to demand response issues:
• Distributed Energy Resource Integration
• Grid-Interactive Behind-the-Meter Storage
• Retail Pricing/Rates
• Customer Engagement
• Thermostats

Presentations of any length, topic or style will be considered, but preference will be given to 20-minute presentations (with up to 10 minutes more for audience discussion) from utility/retailer program staff presenting demand response-related case studies that leverage trade ally relations. A limited number of half-day workshop spots are also available on the agenda with preference given to the PLMA Interest Groups. Please, no sales pitches.

Special consideration will be given to PLMA member organizations, but all industry professionals may submit. The Conference Planning Group is comprised of PLMA members. They will review and score each submission based on the topic's industry relevance as well as the presenter's engaging, interactive approach.

This PLMA conference will focus on sharing knowledge among market practitioners, technology firms, and utilities/retailers active in the demand response marketplace. About  200 industry professionals are expected to attend, including: utility and regulatory staff, business professionals responsible for demand response; as well as industry advisors including consultants, manufacturers, and service providers.

Please complete the session proposal below and provide:

  • Presentation title and one-paragraph description as it might appear in the agenda (about 150 words)
  • Presenter(s) name, title, organization as it might appear in the agenda and contact information for all presenters.  Your submission is your assurance that co-presenters proposed have been notified of their inclusion; "to be determined" presenters will not be accepted.
  • Brief explanation of why the session will be thought-provoking and compelling for our core audience of demand response practitioners from utility/government/marketer service providers.

The presentation proposal submission deadline is January 9, 2017 so that proposal acceptance decisions may be made by the Program Planning Committee by February 1, 2016. If your submission is selected, the presenters identified in your submission will receive an invitation to present including a discounted registration code.  All presenters must register for the conference to confirm their acceptance to speak, and thereby agree to follow the PLMA Presenter Policy.   Presenters are responsible for their own registration cost, travel and hotel expenses. All presenters must comply with the PLMA Presenter Policy.
