Group: Women in Demand Response

About Women in Demand Response:  

Women play an important role in demand response leadership and delivery. This interest group helps to promote that role by encouraging greater visibility, support, and recognition of women in the industry. The group is in the process of defining its mission, objectives, and future opportunities. As part of this process, the Group founders fielded a member survey which has been fundamental for aligning the interest group’s actions with service to the PLMA membership.
