Learn why Target Corporation was recognized as a Program Pacesetter in the 14th PLMA Awards.
This national retailer’s Demand Management Program, led by David Johnson, has influenced how Target operates its’ stores, leveraging new and existing technology and control strategies to deliver energy savings through peak demand reduction and participation in Demand Response programs.

Target’s Peak Load Management program has grown from a pilot at 43 locations to a program impacting over 700 stores since 2013. In addition, Target has grown its Demand Response program to over 800 locations enrolled throughout the U.S. delivering 800,000 kWh of energy reduction in 2016 and over 70mW of capacity.

Strong industry partnerships and prioritization of aggressive internal demand management goals has enabled Target to continue to leverage building automation systems, data aggregation, and analytics strategies to drive energy conservation and peak demand reductions.

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.
