Utilities around the world are under increasing pressure to maximize energy efficiency, control load, and integrate distributed energy resources. These factors plus a changing regulatory environment are driving new requirements for network resiliency, flexibility, and power quality — all of which impact the traditional utility business case. For utilities to thrive in this changing market, they must embrace greater network agility and work with customers to maximize value for all stakeholders in the value chain.
The 2nd Annual Demand Response World Forum 2015, October 6-8 in Costa Mesa, CA, brings together professionals from around the world to explore the latest demand response and network control strategies for meeting the changing energy landscape of the 21st Century. Technology innovators and business leaders will discuss how to enable an integrated and flexible network that is responsive to a wide range of distributed energy resources, marketplace entities, and customer energy demand and generation.
