Upcoming Events

National Town Meeting on Demand Response & Smart Grid @ Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center
May 26 – May 28 all-day


Registration is now open for the 12th Annual National Town Meeting on Demand Response and Smart Grid! Sign up today and take part in the premier demand response and smart grid event in the US. 2015 National Town Meeting on Demand Response and Smart Grid

May 26-28, 2015 

Washington, DC
This year the National Town Meeting on DR and Smart Grid will continue to focus on how to integrate DR and other Distributed Energy Resources (DER) on the modern grid.

Integration is the word that keeps coming up in the conversations taking place within the DR and smart grid community. The question on everyone’s mind is “how are all of the new technologies that are bursting onto the electricity scene going to be planned, deployed, and operated in a way that takes advantage of what they offer while keeping the electricity system reliable and economical?” We are talking not just about integrating DR, but other DER like DG, storage, EVs, microgrids, distribution automation systems, etc.

But wait…there’s more! What about transactive energy and the expected rise of the “prosumer?”

In planning this year’s Town Meeting, we are building an agenda which will give you a deep dive into some of these areas, and give you enough of a taste of each one so that you get an integrated picture of how everything is going to fit together. Joining with ADS will be a number of different interest groups representing these different DER areas, and they will help ensure a robust, substantive set of sessions that will expand your awareness and understanding of all the things you need to know as a member of the DR & smart grid community.

Jim Gallagher, Executive Director of the New York State Smart Grid Consortium will be speaking at this event.
