In addition to carrying the business voice to agencies and the legislature, The California Efficiency + Demand Management Council provides these services to its members:
A highly informative, regular communication on what’s happening in efficiency and demand response. For members only, distributed approximately every two weeks.
The Council holds Policy Calls every other Friday. These calls are designed to engage the membership on key policy issues and forums where the Council has taken an active role. These calls provide updates on the Council’s involvement at the Legislature, CPUC, CEC, and more- and an opportunity to discuss emerging issues with the Council’s expert staff and fellow members. Participating in these calls is the best way for members to provide input on the Council’s policy positions, raise awareness on key issues facing your company, and stay up-to-date on important policy developments.
Demand Response Calls
The Council is serving the demand response community in California with critical information, advocacy and leadership. We hold a one-hour biweekly call/Webinar specifically dedicated to issues that impact existing and emerging demand management businesses. The Demand Response calls focus on sharing information, developing advocacy positions and developing plans for new opportunities in California’s rapidly-changing regulatory and legislative environment for demand management.
The Council holds calls the last Wednesday of the month with those members interested in evaluation, measurement and verification issues. These calls discuss a range of issues and strategies around EM&V in California.
