PLMA is the Voice of Load Management Professionals

PLMA (Peak Load Management Alliance) was founded in 1999 as 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. The non-profit association provides a forum for practitioners to share dynamic load management expertise, including demand response and distributed energy resources. PLMA members share expertise to educate each other and explore innovative approaches to load management 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.
