ETCC Quarterly Meeting: The Changing Energy Landscape for Industrial Customers

Wednesday, September 20, 2017 -
9:00am to 3:30pm

Managing energy usage in today’s rapidly changing environment is challenging for all customers, none more so than in the industrial sector. New technologies and dynamic methodologies are required to provide a whole facility approach in order to determine the savings from all utility program activities at the facility and to deliver customer engagement over the long term.


9:00 AM - Breakfast and Networking

10:00 AM - Introduction, Safety and ETCC Updates

10:15 AM - Understanding Customer Energy Management Needs

While industrial customers agree that managing energy usage is critical, specific approaches vary significantly among customers. This session highlights the differences and similarities between energy management perspectives and deployment practices from the points of view of industrial companies and a utility.

11:15 AM - ​Implementation Opportunities

Understanding where the largest potential opportunities reside for technology solutions is crucial to designing effective utility programs for industrial customers. However, it’s not just the technology itself that can deliver all the potential, but how the technology is wrapped into a utility program that addresses customer pain points. This session explores one particular industrial customer’s challenges with managing their energy consumption and how a menu of technologies and approaches can potentially help to overcome those challenges.

12:15 PM - Networking Lunch (provided)

1:15 PM - Utility Solutions for the Industrial Sector

To meet the challenges of a rapidly changing energy environment, new program models and approaches are needed to adapt EE and DR savings opportunities to address the needs of a range of large industrial customers. This session addresses how utilities and implementers can work together to bundle technology solutions with flexible programmatic approaches to maximize the savings potential for both utilities and customers.

2:15 PM - Break

2:30 PM - ET Focus for Industrial Customers

SEM, DR, Storage, Load Shifting.  This Alphabet Soup makes us wonder, “What’s Next?”  In this session, we will explore the new and upcoming technologies and methodologies, and how these can solve industrial companies’ energy challenges and save them money. There will also be a focus on the changing regulatory landscape in CA and its impact on utility programs.

3:25 PM - Wrap-Up
