Flexibility is the newest buzzword. You may know flexible load management as a term used to describe how utilities are bending energy demand profiles to meet power supplies rather than the traditional other way around. Our annual Aspen event has proven to be flexible as well... bending to meet attendee needs. For 2020, we're keeping the 2-hour Tuesday workshops we started this year, and we're creating a new Friday morning closing session to share key takeways over breakfast. We hope there will be flexibility in your calendar to join us from Sept. 29 - Oct. 2, 2020.
