RegisterDemand Management Options for Commercial Customers

Colorado River Community Room, Fort Collins

Join us to learn about the latest technology in demand response and peak management.

Coincident peak and facility demand charges can account for up to two-thirds of an energy bill, so proper demand management can save your customers thousands of dollars each year.

Pablo Bauleo, a Senior Energy Services Engineer with Fort Collins Utilities, will present new methods and tools that can be used as a standalone solution, or integrated into any efficiency project.

As part of the presentation, attendees will:

  • Understand the differences between facility demand and coincident peak charges
  • Get an update on the status of the Peak Partners program portfolio
  • Learn about the different tools offered by Utilities, including e-mail notifications, the Peakload webpage, and OpenADR automation
  • Learn about the OpenADR protocol and what it means for your facility
