Demand Response & Distributed Energy Resources World Forum 2016 @ Conference Chicago
Oct 10 – Oct 11 all-day


Utilities around the world are under increasing pressure to accommodate energy efficiency, control load, and integrate distributed energy resources such as renewables. 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 3rd Annual Demand Response & DER World Forum, October 10-11, 2016 in Chicago will bring together professionals from around the world to explore the latest auto-DR and distributed energy resources strategies for meeting the changing energy landscape of the 21st Century. Technology innovators and business leaders will discuss the evolving role of ADR and emerging network control technologies in enabling an integrated and flexible network that accommodates a range of energy generation resources, marketplace entities, and prosumer customers.
