Please join us for a HOT TOPICS Conversation about the California Energy Commission's (CEC) approach to revolutionizing the way customers and technology providers have access to time-varying rates. With special guest, Dr. Karen Herter from the Efficiency Division at the CEC, we'll talk about how the CEC is building a framework for grid flexibility through the convergence of new and existing technologies, and we'll discuss how this came about, the resulting policy implications, and the ways in which other utilities, states, and stakeholders can leverage this opportunity.    

Come and participate, learn, or just listen. You’ll gather key insights and ideas from fellow load management practitioners from across the PLMA membership.
