APPA Seeks Nominations for Two Openings on Smart Energy Provider Review Panel

The American Public Power Association is accepting nominations through Feb. 17, 2023, for two open positions on the Smart Energy Provider 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 the SEP designation. More information on the SEP program is available on the SEP website.

Each member of the panel can serve for up to three consecutive two-year terms (for a total of six years), and is expected to travel to and attend two meetings per year, one in the summer and one in the fall.

The appointed members’ first term will begin immediately and expire after two years in 2025 at the Business meeting of that year.

Applicants should have expertise in energy efficiency, distributed energy resources, load management, integrated resource planning, and demand-side management.

To nominate yourself or someone else for the open positions on the SEP Panel, complete the Nomination Form by Friday, February 17.
