A National Town Meeting on demand response + smart grid


Thanks for attending NTM 2016!

Save the date for next year – July 25-27, 2017


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.

The National Town Meeting is presented by The Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA). SEPA is an educational non-profit that facilitates collaboration across the electric power industry to enable the smart deployment and integration of clean energy resources – focusing on solar, storage, demand response, and other enabling technologies. SEPA is the founder and co-organizer of Solar Power International, the nation’s largest solar energy conference and trade show. SEPA provides a range of reports, educational events, networking opportunities and advisory consulting services to its members.

In November 2015, SEPA joined forces with the Association for Demand Response & Smart Grid. You can read more about the transition here.
