Over the past few years, PLMA's DER Integration Interest Group has succeeded in integrating DER into every aspect of PLMA's work, from the current Strategic Plan to daily programming. Having achieved its mission within PLMA, the DER Interest Group is ready to review its accomplishments and lessons learned, and engage member practitioners in a discussion of new Interest Group opportunities ahead.

Join this HOT TOPIC Conversation as PLMA looks back on the DER Integration Interest Group success story and plans forward for the development of dynamic and timely new Interest Groups.

With special guests, former Interest Group Co-Chairs Matt Carlson and Steve Koep.

About the DER Integration Interest Group

This PLMA Interest Group addresses key economic, engineering, and customer program design aspects of Distributed Energy Resource (DER) Integration, including: a) valuation of load management resources in “firming” non-dispatchable renewable resources, b) program design and re-design issues for adapting DR programs from peak-shaving to DER integration programs, and c) technology needs assessments for DER applications.
