Join the California Efficiency + Demand Management Council and guest speakers as we celebrate our 10-year anniversary with a one-day professional education symposium focused on what we have learned in the past decade, where we are today, and what the big issues are on the horizon.
The Council held another successful Fall Conference in Oakland on October 25, 2018. More than 200 attendees engaged with speakers, panelists, and one another to share strategies as California leads the way to a decarbonized future. Energy efficiency and demand management will clearly be key game changers as California’s energy system rapidly evolves.
The next Fall Conference is being planned for Fall, 2019. Stay tuned!
April 15, 2019 Pacific Energy Center
This half-day training from the Council, designed for mid-level professionals, will raise your policy IQ and deliver career-building insights to demystify California’s policies on energy efficiency and demand response. We will provide an overview from the very early days of energy “conservation” starting in the 1960’s through today and identify how major events have influenced the policy landscape. We will define and dive into pending or recently decided policies and legislation that impact your job in the energy efficiency and demand response industries. Take away resources you can use to stay up-to-date in this ever-changing industry. This is the perfect foundation to quickly accelerate your understanding and help you better navigate your career in energy efficiency and demand response.
The Council hosts regular happy hours with our friends at AESP’s California Chapter to get members and colleagues together to network about progress in the energy efficiency and demand response industry. Happy hours are open to the public so invite your friends and colleagues for an evening of fun, networking, appetizers and drinks!
The theme of our January 31 EM&V Forum at the Pacific Energy Center was the importance of working and learning together in this time of great and rapid change. From the first presentation to the last panel of the day, our engaging panelists offered their unique perspectives on normalized metered energy consumption (NMEC), pay-for-performance and third-party implementation issues, and we were reminded that together we are doing great things.
