APPA Seeks Nominations For Two Openings On Smart Energy Provider Review Panel

The American Public Power Association (APPA) is accepting nominations through Monday, August 9, 2021 for two open positions on the Smart Energy Provider (SEP) Program Review Panel. 

The SEP program is public power’s evaluation and review of leading practices for utilities based on four criteria: smart energy program planning, energy efficiency and distributed energy resources, environmental and sustainability programs, and customer communication and education.

The SEP Review Panel guides APPA staff in the implementation of the SEP program and provides expert peer review of public power utilities’ applications for SEP recognition.

Two seats are currently available for up to three consecutive two-year terms. Each member of the panel is expected to attend two meetings per year, one in the summer and one in the fall. There will be virtual attendance options for these meetings as well.

The nominated members are invited to shadow the SEP Business meeting on October 24, 2021. The first term of this position will officially begin after the 2021 Customer Connections Conference in October.

Nominations of APPA members with expertise in energy efficiency, distributed energy resources, load management, integrated resource planning, and demand-side management are encouraged.
