IOU Business Forums (Members Only):
Every year the Council and each investor-owned utility convenes a business forum. The forums are a unique opportunity to hear key utility representatives speak about their energy efficiency and demand response goals and activities, and discuss topics affecting our businesses. We also provide networking time, so it’s a great opportunity to meet utility staff. The business forums are typically held in the spring and summer.
The IOU forums are free to full and sustaining members. If you are a member and would like to learn more, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
EM&V Forum with the IOUs (Members Only):
Each year Council members and the IOUs get together for an EM&V Business Forum. This forum is to better understand the broad goals of the utilities, meet a number of their pertinent staff and have a conversation about key issues relating to EM&V. The primary focus of the 2016 agenda was normalized metered energy consumption (NMEC) from the perspective of IOU Program Administrators (program-orientation), Implementers, and EM&V practitioners. Each perspective helped promote extensive discussion. The IOU forums are free to full and sustaining members. If you are a member and would like to learn more, email email@example.com.
