What's Next in Demand Response?
New Programs, New Offerings
Demand response (DR) benefits are many and include utility rebates to offset controls and upgrades, and the lowering of CO2 emissions through participation in these programs which in turn helps the grid and leads to more renewables.
In this webinar, you will hear from industry expert Ron Rau on how you can promote these programs and engage an internal supportive ally/allies within your organization. With multiple years of experience previously with Limited Brands as VP Store Operations, Procurement and Maintenance, Ron will provide a unique perspective bringing in his vast experience with store and facility maintenance, energy services, non-merchandise procurement, retail operations and lifecycle management. There are several key steps required to evaluate, contract, test and ensure your facilities are ready to participate and timing the timing is perfect to begin this process now.
You will also learn:
- How to build and sell the business case internally from a financial perspective and get ahead of program deadlines
- How Enersponse can help you earn more, keep more and save more by gaining access to more markets and by reducing emissions when the grid is dirtiest.
- How you can scale demand response across a diverse portfolio with multiple legacy, BAS systems to maximize savings.
- How to obtain an assessment of your entire energy and facilities equipment portfolio from Phoenix Energy Technologies to understand how to best capitalize on DR programs available.
