Posted May 7, 2024

Portland, OR – May 7, 2024 - PLMA (Peak Load Management Alliance), the voice of load management practitioners, today announced the winners of its 2024 Awards at the 49th PLMA Conference. This annual awards program recognizes innovative approaches to flexible load management, honors the practitioners who develop and launch them, and follows up with a detailed exploration of each winner’s work in the form of a 1-hour educational webinar which is offered at no charge to all PLMA and industry stakeholders.

These 2024 Award Winners were selected for the learnings and outcomes of their initiatives:

“Each spring, PLMA honors load management practitioners who have created ground-breaking incentive programs (‘Pacesetters’), or who have implemented leading-edge technologies (‘Pioneers’), or who have excelled in extraordinary customer engagement (‘Thought Leaders’),” explained PLMA Awards Co-Chair Kevin Knight of Baltimore Gas and Electric. “Their initiatives, successes, and lessons learned provide valuable perspectives for consideration and adaptation by other energy professionals."

“With the involvement of 20 volunteer judges, all of whom are PLMA member practitioners, each award nomination is carefully vetted by a group of industry peers using a rubric methodology,” said PLMA Awards Co-Chair Meg Campbell of Guidehouse. “The award-winning programs each demonstrate effective approaches to meeting peak energy loads while helping to support a stable, DER-integrated electric grid.”

The PLMA Award Series of live webinars will be hosted from June through October 2024, and will also be published on PLMA’s YouTube channel for the benefit of energy professionals everywhere. The webinar schedule will be published on PLMA’s Calendar.
