consideration will be given to utilities wishing to make presentations
on these topics. Presentations need not be extravagant and the presentation
can be as short as fifteen (15) minutes.

the role of load research in electricity procurement, least-cost sampling,
new metering, end-use research, integrated resource planning, program
evaluation, and marketing support. WLRA also encourages the participation
by any and all people involved in load research or related fields. In
order for the members to stay current on load research, presentations
should involve current projects, even if the final results are not compiled.
Useful applications are especially encouraged.
continued success of the Western Load Research Conference depends on
participation from utility members. It is for this reason that utility
presentations are particularly encouraged, but utility-vendor partnership
presentations are also welcomed.
