PLMA Accepting Nominations for Best Demand Response Programs

VALLEJO, CA, Feb 14, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- The Peak Load Management Alliance (PLMA) is now accepting nominations of the best demand response programs offered in calendar year 2012 for its 10th Annual PLMA Award Program. Deadline for submittals is March 15, 2013. The awards will be presented at the PLMA Spring Conference set for April 24-25, 2013 in Austin, Texas.


THE PLMA Award Program recognizes those energy industry leaders that create innovative methods to meet peak load needs, mitigate price risks and manage variable generation. Demand response has grown from simply reducing peak loads to balancing supply and demand for increased efficiency and reliability of a smarter grid. Demand response and other methods to balancing intermittent power loads are becoming even more important as renewable energy becomes a larger part of electricity supply.

"There were a lot of innovative and creative demand response programs being operated during the year 2012," said Greg Wikler, Director of Regulatory Affairs, EnerNOC and PLMA Awards Committee Chair. "This Awards program is a way to recognize and highlight the best of these programs." The awards will be presented based on the following criteria: -- Results (the value of demand or energy reductions during peak periods) -- Customer satisfaction -- Program clarity, flexibility and ease of participation -- Program management -- Customer education -- Innovative use of demand response and/or communication technology; -- Management of program and/or customer performance information -- Cost effectiveness -- Long-term viability For more information, visit the PLMA web site at www.peaklma.org.
