    ScottMadden to Join Demand Response and Smart Grid Experts at National Town Meeting

    July 8, 2016 - July 7, 2016 Atlanta, GA


      ScottMadden, Inc., one of North America's leading energy consulting firms, will soon join top experts as a presenter at The National Town Meeting on Demand Response and Smart Grid being held July 11-13 at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC. This event provides a unique platform to discuss the latest trends, issues, and business developments for demand response and its enabling technologies and applications.

      During this event, Chris Vlahoplus, partner and clean tech & sustainability practice leader at ScottMadden, will serve as a panelist for the session, "Roadmaps to the Future: Defining the 51st State." The goal of the 51st State is to find multiple frameworks that provide a platform for all stakeholders to participate in our energy future together. This roundtable, moderated by Julia Hamm of Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA), will explore the process, results, and expected outcomes from this visionary process. Additional panelists will include Caroline Choi of Southern California Edison, Jan Ahlen of NRECA, and Ben Bixby of Nest.

      Additionally, Cristin Lyons, partner and grid transformation practice leader at ScottMadden, will moderate the breakout session, "Emerging Models and Markets - Policy and Regulatory Evolution." Increasingly across the country, Distributed Energy Resources (DER) have gone from a novelty with low penetration to a driving force of change for both customers and utilities. In response, regulatory proceedings have become ever-present with different jurisdictions beginning to address rate reform, valuation studies, or both. This session will dig into how a variety of proceedings have unfolded and will elucidate the variety of approaches and conversations occurring nationwide. Panelists will include Virginia Lacy of Rocky Mountain Institute, Corey Singletary of Public Service Commission of Wisconsin, and Ann McCabe of Illinois Commerce Commission.

      "There is no more important topic for the integration of DER than the development of a regulatory model that works for all stakeholders," said Ms. Lyons.
