Report on Demand Response & Smart Grid State Policies Issued in Advance of National Town Meeting
WASHINGTON, June 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In conjunction with the upcoming National Town Meeting on Demand Response and Smart grid in Washington, DC, the Association for Demand Response and Smart Grid (ADS) released today its annual nationwide review of state policy developments.
The Report, "Demand Response & Smart Grid—State Legislative and Regulatory Policy Action Review: July 2011 – May 2012," is ADS's annual overview of state regulatory and legislative policy activity over the preceding 12 months. It is available for download on the ADS website at www.demandresponsesmartgrid.org.
"Once again ADS is pleased to provide the DR and Smart Grid community with a snapshot of what kind of policies are unfolding that impact this area," said Dan Delurey, Executive Director of ADS. "And that picture shows that there is a lot of progress being made, but probably not as much as there could be—or should be."
"As usual, policy will be one of the topics that will get a lot of focus at the National Town Meeting," said Delurey. "We have some top policymakers on the agenda, but it is also something that everyone gets to weigh in on, whether through our electronic voting system or via the general discussion that takes place."
The National Town Meeting on DR and Smart Grid takes place in Washington, DC, June 26 – 28. More information is available at www.smartgridtownmeeting.com.
