Husch Blackwell, with Peak Load Management Alliance and The George Washington University Law School, sponsor the Second Annual Conference on the Law of Demand Response. James Hoecker and Marvin Griff of Husch Blackwell are the principal organizers.

Husch Blackwell Senior Counsel James Hoecker moderates a discussion on whether demand response can be called upon as a resource and integrated into the normal dispatch of integrated electric systems. The panel explores the regulatory approaches that could be developed to facilitate the use of demand response and whether regulators in markets that lack real-time operating systems or retail competitors are prepared to explore the discussed approach.
