Learn why City of New York's Municipal Demand Response Program was recognized as a Program Pacesetter in the 14th PLMA Awards.

The City’s program encompasses over 340 facilities across 20 city agencies and organizations. For summer 2016 period, the program reduced over 58 MW, which was over 10% of the engaged locations' load, which comprised 40% of the City's municipal peak load. Recent achievements include consistent 100% portfolio performance and over $9.5M in summer 2016 revenue.

Drivers that helped the program progress include training for city agency administrators and building operations staff, year-round participation in NYISO, and expanded participation in Con Ed summer programs, City oversight supported by an industry expert, allowing agencies to keep earned revenue, recognition of top performers, and last, but not least, integration of real-time monitoring technology.

One of the most exciting and significant features of the program is an online platform, developed and maintained based on specifications by the City’s program oversight team, to track program metrics and to monitor load in near-real-time.

Plan to join PLMA for a dialogue with these industry thought leaders.

Who Should Attend.
Utility and regulatory staff as well as other energy industry trade allies and organizations seeking thought leadership and insight on innovative demand response methods to meet peak energy load needs, mitigate price, and manage variable generation.
