Due to rising baselines and increased pressure on utilities to cost-effectively deliver energy savings, there has been a recent proliferation of midstream programs. In 2019, we released the report Sending your DSM measures upstream, which identified 93 demand-side management (DSM) programs from close to 70 organizations across the US and Canada. Through our research into the challenges facing midstream programs, we identified several effective program designs and delivery strategies that address the common challenges facing midstream programs. Join us for this web conference where we’ll present the findings from our midstream report series and discuss the designs for some of the industry-leading programs that we identified.

We’ll also take into account the current climate amid COVID-19, and provide suggestions on how to adjust your midstream and upstream programs.

Potential topics include:

  • How COVID-19 is affecting midstream channels
  • Popular and promising measures moving up the stream
  • Tips for choosing measures and setting incentive levels
  • The major barriers facing midstream programs and how utilities are addressing them
