PLMA (Peak Load Management Alliance) was founded in 1999
as the voice of demand response practitioners. It is a community of experts and practitioners dedicated to sharing knowledge and providing resources to promote inclusiveness in the
design, delivery, technology, and management of solutions addressing
energy and natural resource integration.
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 will continue to maintain a forum where practical experience, ideas, and knowledge are promoted to those seeking access to a vast network of industry professionals and practitioners. It is also a place where members gather to keep abreast of the latest industry trends in load management and to inform the next generation. We offer timely subject matter and training opportunities to address key facets of our industry charge.
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 consumer groups.
PLMA grew to 123 utility and allied organization members in 2016, , an increase of almost 300% in 4 years. PLMA details its latest achievements in the 2016 PLMA Annual Activity Report for Members.
