Program Design and Technology, led by Wes Whited

Many utility C&I programs are required to do more with less, which requires decision makers to seek innovative solutions that allocate resources in a way that streamline internal operations. Learn how integrating EE and DR at the device level streamlines internal operations, simplifies outreach efforts and creates curtailable loads from small- and medium-sized businesses. Through a live demonstration, you’ll see the types of building loads that are energy efficient and demand responsive, and the utility-specific protocols used to automate device curtailment.
