THE LEADING EDGE: Energy Efficiency and Demand Management in a Decarbonized Future

Join us for a full day conference on October 25, 2018 to hear from experts and leaders at the center of this movement. The Council’s Fall Conference is the premier opportunity for California utilities, regulators, elected officials, and industry companies to network, hear from one another, and share ideas on today’s top energy policy issues.

IOU Business Forums (Members Only):
Every year the Council and each investor-owned utility convenes a business forum. The forums are a unique opportunity to hear key utility representatives speak about their energy efficiency and demand response goals and activities, and discuss topics affecting our businesses. We also provide networking time, so it’s a great opportunity to meet utility staff. The business forums are typically held in the spring and summer.

EM&V Forum with the IOUs:
Each year Council members and the IOUs get together for an EM&V Business Forum. This forum is to better understand the broad goals of the utilities, meet a number of their pertinent staff and have a conversation about key issues relating to EM&V. The primary focus of the 2016 agenda was normalized metered energy consumption (NMEC) from the perspective of IOU Program Administrators (program-orientation), Implementers, and EM&V practitioners. Each perspective helped promote extensive discussion. If you are a member and would like to learn more, email email@example.com.
Policy Calls (Members Only):
The Council holds Policy Call Webinars every other Friday. These calls are designed to engage the membership on key policy issues and forums where The Council is active.
