California – one of the most dynamic regions and economies in the world – has been a major hot-bed of activity for the energy industry. The state has been a leader in promoting environmental accountability, energy efficiency, and facilitating the development of a diversified electricity generation portfolio. As emerging trends in sustainability, demand response, and on-site generation strengthen, California is once again poised to be a bastion of innovation in business, academia, and government.
Balancing California’s Energy Equation is an exercise in aligning the interests of consumers, utilities, municipalities, and private enterprise. By aligning the stakeholders in California, we can optimize California’s energy ecosystem, promote technology innovation and deployment. In addition, if balanced correctly, we can expect an increase in demand for efficiency and generation projects, improved local economic conditions, and targeted investments that will have a positive impact on CA’s environment.
Following LACI’s Global Showcase, join us for an evening of hors d’oeurvres, drinks, and networking while we confront the next steps in Balancing California’s Energy Equation.
