Session 7B: Strategic Partnership Session Integrated Demand-Side Management - The Next Frontier

Moderator: Dave Hyland, Zen Ecosystems

Speakers: Griffin Reilly, Con Edison and Greg Wikler, Navigant

In response to rapid changes to grid conditions and policy mandates, utilities and implementers are beginning to embrace far broader applications of energy efficiency and demand response programs.  This embrace is necessitating taking a more integrated approach to how these programs are being designed and delivered.  According to the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, Integrated Demand-side Management (IDSM) is a strategic approach that helps in designing and delivering a portfolio of demand side management (DSM) programs to customers.  While DSM programs have been in place for many years, the IDSM concept is only now beginning to pick up steam and is receiving a significant amount of attention.  AESP and PLMA have collaborated to begin exploring what IDSM is and how best to implement many of the IDSM concepts.  Explore several IDSM issues with experts in the field with an aim toward helping the industry gain a better understanding of IDSM.   

Session 8B: Non Wire DER Grid Source

Moderator:  Justin Chamberlain, CPS Energy

Ten Non-Wires Alternatives Projects Worth Watching

Speaker: Tiger Adolf, PLMA

Discover key considerations from 10 leading nonwires-alternatives (NWA) projects that are deferring the need for traditional electric grid infrastructure upgrades. The 10 projects include a cross-representation by size, geography, and primary drivers as well as varying technology approaches (e.g., renewable and other distributed generation, demand response, and energy efficiency). In this panel, a project team will share the latest insights from this joint research effort and delve into key NWA efforts taking place across the country.
