Strategic Initiative A: Spark DER Innovation

Challenge Definition Roundtable 


Wednesday, June 9, 2021 12:00 to 2:00 pm ET


Hosted by the Spark DER Innovation Team

The Challenge Definition Roundtable is the first event in PLMA’s Innovation Forum. It represents a unique opportunity to catalyze DER innovation. Roundtable participants will share information and discussion about unaddressed or overlooked challenges related to the advancement of DERs.

Rather than showcasing solutions, pilots, or even proof-of-concepts, the Roundtable will explore the trickiest challenges that industry leaders are facing, understand the difficulties through better problem definition, and ultimately spark discussions, connections, and ideas on progressive solutions.

Roundtable Format:
Presenters will share six not-yet-addressed DER challenges, followed by audience discussions. 

PLEASE NOTE: 
To enable meaningful discussion and participation, Roundtable attendance is capped at 30 people. Please register soon to ensure your spot!

About PLMA's DER Strategic Initiative A: Spark DER Innovation

PLMA's Vision 2021 Strategic Plan included two strategic initiatives: A) Spark DER Innovation, and B) Foster DER Adoption. Spark DER Innovation's mission is to stimulate DER advancement by providing a process/platform for identifying industry needs and accelerating innovation, while Foster DER Adoption is focused on paving the DER path by promoting forward-leaning solutions, market models, organizational change management, and operational experiences. Together, these two strategic initiatives represent a major focus of PLMA's work.
