The industry is evolving at a variety of speeds across North America (usually depending upon geographical region) and learnings are being discovered unevenly in most cases. Therefore, it is necessary to monitor developments and use a broad base of information to help formulate plans for the future. Even though many utility commissions put a premium on pilots/projects within their jurisdiction(s) there is so much to be learned as others continue down the learning curve.

The playing field is changing quickly for utilities, services providers and end users--to the point that the lines between them are blurring in many cases. This panel discussion features some of the top entities involved in research concerning the opportunities and impacts of the growth of flexible load technologies. Join us as they share some highlights of what they are seeing in the marketplace and where it may be leading.
