Join the PLMA Load Management Dialogue for "The Promise and Progress of Integrated Energy Efficiency and Demand Response Programs" with Dan York, ACEEE; Craig Aubuchon, Ameren Missouri; and Olivia Patterson, Opinion Dynamics on Thursday, March 19, 2020; 12:30 - 1:00 p.m. Eastern.  In a large missed opportunity to boost power grid flexibility and benefit customers, relatively few US utilities have programs that fully integrate energy efficiency and demand response, according to ACEEE’s recently published review of 44 utility portfolios. Program administrators typically have approached and implemented energy efficiency (EE) and demand response (DR) programs separately. While the benefits and value of integrated EE/DR programs have long been recognized, ACEEE’s recent research shows that most customer programs still are not integrated. During this Dialogue, Dan York will present results from ACEEE’s review, which characterizes the landscape of integrated EE/DR programs in the US. York also will provide examples of successful programs and discuss how they have overcome challenges to integration.  Read the ACEEE report at click here and plan to join PLMA for a dialogue with these industry thought leaders.  Register for free at
