The Association of Energy Services Professionals (AESP) and the Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) are excited to offer this innovative and informative workshop in conjunction with the 2016 National Town Meeting on Demand Response and Smart Grid.

This newly-designed course* will examine the elements of behavior change in energy efficiency programs. This is an interaction-rich course, for participants who will be designing, building, and/or evaluating their own behavioral program or energy efficiency program with behavioral elements. After completing this course, you will:

  • Understand why regulators, policymakers and program managers zero-in on behavior for improving existing programs, designing new programs and for meeting savings goals
  • Understand the various behavioral change theories from the perspective of the social sciences
  • Know how to integrate behavior strategies into programs
  • Know the fundamentals of designing and planning behavior programs
  • Understand how to evaluate behavior programs and measure persistent savings

Behind the Meter (BTM) Technologies are quickly gaining traction within the consumer electricity landscape. As technologies like customer-sited solar, electric vehicles, storage, and smart energy devices controlled with automated demand response become more accessible and affordable, the growing need for a more flexible and interactive grid has become even more apparent. This one-day workshop sponsored by Nest will provide insights into the needs and wants of today’s more tech-savvy consumer. It will also identify the key components necessary for the successful integration of BTM technologies, including new market structures, grid planning strategies, business models, and enabling technologies. Participants will gain market insights about the deployment of these technologies and will learn through case studies from both utility and industry leaders that have successfully launched BTM offerings.
