A National Town Meeting on demand response + smart grid

Call for Speakers Open through 3/11

Eligible speakers are encouraged to apply to speak at the upcoming 2016 National Town Meeting on Demand Response and Smart Grid in Washington, DC, July 11-13. More information.


The National Town Meeting on Demand Response and Smart Grid® is the premier event in the US focused on the business and policy aspects of demand response and its enabling technologies and applications. It is unique in that it devotes an entire day to roundtable discussions featuring experts in demand response and smart grid, who discuss with each other and with the audience the latest trends, issues, and business developments. The National Town Meeting also features panel discussions, case studies, and presentations of best practices. Another hallmark is attendee engagement, whether through Q&A sessions with top business leaders and policymakers, through formal electronic voting, or through the National Town Meeting’s reception and other networking sessions.
