The Association for Demand Response & Smart Grid (ADS) has announced this year's recipients of its Demand Response and Smart Grid Leadership Awards: Donna Nelson, chairman of the Public Utility Commission of Texas (PUCT), and Catherine Sandoval, commissioner on the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).

The awards will be presented at ADS' 2013 National Town Meeting on Demand Response and Smart Grid, held July 9-11 in Washington, D.C.

"The front lines for modernizing the nation's electricity system, and introducing new technologies and practices like demand response, are at the state level," says Dan Delurey, executive director of ADS. "That is where investments must be made and policies changed to allow smart grid and DR to flourish.

“Our two recipients, as state commissioners, understand that and have been leaders in trying to bring together utilities, technology companies, consumers and stakeholders to forge new paths that will lead to a more optimized electricity system in the future,” Delurey continues. “It is with great pleasure that ADS recognizes the efforts of these two individuals with our annual award."
