PLMA Demand Response Dialogue Webinar Series Takes Provocative Look at Energy Utility of the Future With Phil Davis, Schneider

PLMA Demand Response Dialogue Webinar Series Takes Provocative Look at Energy 
Utility of the Future With Phil Davis, Schneider Electric
and Rich Philip, Duke Energy 
VALLEJO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/16/13 --  The Peak Load Management
Alliance (PLMA) today introduced a new kind of webinar that allows
for more dialogue with focused discussion with an energy industry
thought leader. "A Provocative Look at the Utility of the Future with
Phil Davis, Schneider Electric" will be the first in the series on
Tuesday, July 23, at 12:30 p.m. Eastern. 
This first PLMA Demand Response Dialogue will share insight from Phil
Davis, author of "A Provocative Look at the Utility of the Future," a
June article published in Powergrid International, in conversation
with PLMA Vice Chairman Rich Philip who is a Product Manager with
Duke Energy. In the recent article, Phil Davis observes that
Integrated Demand Response, Microgrids and Grid-size Optimization is
ushering in fully integrated smart grid -- from the control center to
the customer. Phil Davis predicts the Utility of the Future won't
look so different from the utility of today because generation,
transmission and distribution will remain, as will control rooms,
customer service and customers. But he says what will change are the
attitudes, processes and relationships of suppliers and customers,
perhaps in ways similar to a smart phone ecosystem.  
Phil Davis is Senior Manager of Smart Grid Solutions for Schneider
Electric. Among his recent credits is the design and installation of
a groundbreaking "intelligent building system" at Rockefeller Center
in New York. 
For this new kind of webinar, registrants may submit a comment or
question in advance. After brief introductions, the two speakers will
have an informal 30-minute conversation where registrants may just
listen in or submit follow-on comments or questions. To learn more
