Mike Ratliff, CTO at GridPoint, will share expert insight in a discussion about revenue opportunities from demand response programs, building decarbonization and grid reliability

RESTON, Va.Aug. 18, 2023 

Mike Ratliff, CTO at GridPoint, will speak alongside Corey Bentine, senior manager of business development at Leap, in an expert discussion on “Unlocking Overlooked Flexible Capacity at the Grid Edge.”

Buildings are one of the top energy consumers, producing approximately 40% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. With 90% of U.S. buildings having square footage of less than 50,000, these small, overlooked buildings have enormous untapped potential as paid grid resources, and represent the greatest, most cost-effective opportunity to reduce carbon and bolster grid resilience. The presentation will look to the future and how scaling up the next generation of automated, inclusive, and market-integrated demand flexibility solutions is key to unlocking this sector and making the energy transition profitable for all.

The AESP 2023 Summer Conference will bring together hundreds of professionals, including demand flexibility marketers, program managers, strategists and technology providers to discuss, collaborate and learn about innovative solutions in the clean energy industry.
