BRING IT ON! Achieving California’s Efficiency and Demand Management Goals
California’s energy policy landscape is as dynamic as ever. As we look to the state’s 2030 climate goals, energy efficiency and demand response will be tapped to drive a cleaner and more reliable grid. Taking on this role means changing the way these energy resources are valued, structured, and leveraged. Hear from experts and leaders at the center of this movement and join the team!
The CEDMC 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. Learn more here.

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.
The IOU forums are free to full and sustaining members. If you are a member and would like to learn more, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
EM&V Forum with the IOUs (Members Only):
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. The IOU forums are free to full and sustaining members. 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. They regularly provide updates and discussion around the Council’s involvement at the Legislature, CPUC, CEC, and more. Participating in these calls is the best way for members to provide input on policy positions, raise awareness on key issues facing your company, and stay up-to-date on important policy developments. Policy Calls are free to full and sustaining members. If you are a member and would like to be included in these calls, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
EM&V Calls (Members Only):
The Council holds Webinars 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.
