Join Virtual Peaker at these 2023 Utility Energy Conferences

We’re looking to make meaningful connections with energy professionals and experts and expand our network in 2023. What better way to do that than to attend in-person utility-specific conferences that focus on areas of smart grid technologies, distributed energy resources, and consumer engagement of these technologies?  These utility energy conferences are also a great way to stay up-to-date with the industry and learn about new methodologies and insights that can be useful for utilities. Check out which events we’ll have a team at and if you plan to attend, let’s connect!

2023 CEO Close-Up & Good Government Golf Tournament

The first of our utility energy conferences, we’ll be starting the year off right with a trip down to sunny Marco Island, Florida from January 8-10, 2023, to meet with electric cooperative CEOs at NRECA’s 2023 CEO Close-Up event. We’re also proud to be the title sponsor of the Good Government Golf Tournament which kicks off the CEO Up-Close event on Sunday, January 8th. This event will be a hole-in-one and we’ll be there to build relationships, make connections, and dig into what is motivating electric co-ops leaders during the clean energy transition.

SECC Consumer Symposium

Held February 6, 2023, in San Diego, California, the SECC Consumer Symposium utility energy conference is a one-day event that takes place one day prior to DistribuTECH International. The theme is “Empowering Consumers Through the Energy Transition” and we’re excited to take part in helping do so. Digging into the agenda, you’ll find topics that include electrification, energy equity, energy efficiency education, and consumer impact on the grid, all subjects near and dear to us. Our Director of Client Marketing, Shadea Mitchell will participate at 1:45 PM on a panel entitled “Consumers Vs. the Grid.” Register today and join in on the conversation.

DistribuTECH International

DistribuTECH touts itself as “the leading annual transmission and distribution event for utilities, technology providers, and industry leaders,” making it an ideal utility energy conference for us to connect with innovators in the utility space. Experience the energy movement at DistribuTECH International with us from February 7-9, 2023 in sunny San Diego California! We’ll be on the show floor in booth #1900 talking about all things decarbonization, smart grid technology, and of course best practices for demand response programs.

The Association of Energy Services Professionals (AESP) is hosting the AESP Annual Conference from February 27-March 2, 2023. This utility energy conference is down in the bayou of New Orleans, Louisiana and our team is going to be in booth #414. Emerging technology, demand response, the impact of DERs on the grid, and utility decarbonization efforts will be some of the hot topics discussed in our booth. If you’re interested in these topics and looking to connect, stop by!

TechAdvantage Expo

Join us at this year’s TechAdvantage Expo in Nashville, Tennessee from March 6-8, 2023.

Stop in for a visit with us in booth #844 on the show floor to network and discuss ways to decarbonize, lower energy costs, and improve member satisfaction.

Virtual Peaker Empower Innovation Forum

We’ll be hosting our clients and partners at our very own utility energy conference, the Virtual Peaker Empower Innovation Forum, our exclusive event in our hometown of Louisville, Kentucky again this year from September 26-28, 2023! And trust me, this is not just another industry event! This event fosters the needed connections between experts to make the promise of DERs a reality. We’ll gather experts to discuss the toughest questions about DER program management, rate design, technology solutions, EVs, and more. If you’re interested in joining the conversation, reach out to the Virtual Peaker team. As we get closer, more information will go out, so check back here or watch your channels for details as we have them.

eSource Forum

If you’re heading to Denver, Colorado September 19-22, 2023 for the eSource Forum utility energy conference, we’ll be there. As platinum sponsors of this event, we’re most excited to learn from utility professionals about trends and best practices affecting their clean energy transition. We want to chat about hot topics including DR programs, EV telematics, virtual power plants, and more!

2023 Energy Conferences Conclusion

We believe that the connections and knowledge gained at these utility energy conferences are priceless. Because of that, we want to foster those connections and be part of your clean energy future, which is why we’re already excited about all the opportunities we have to connect this year. Remember: we’re always looking for new ways to meet up and discover the ways we can help each other decarbonize, lower energy spending and strengthen grid resilience, so watch this post as we will update it throughout the year as more events are added.
