The California Efficiency + Demand Management Council (the Council) works hard to keep energy efficiency and demand management forefront in decisions at the legislature and energy agencies, such as the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), the California Energy Commission (CEC), and the California Independent System Operator (CAISO). Our advocacy relies on an active Board and involved members to help guide our positions. Become a Member of the Council to have your voice heard in critical energy policy arenas. We are active parties in a number of regulatory proceedings. We work with various legislators (mostly at the state level) to draft and support efficiency and demand management legislation that will benefit our members. We partner with key stakeholders including utilities, other trade groups and advocates in support of our resources. Finally, we organize a number of public events each year with the aim of creating opportunities for various stakeholders to network and engage on important topics affecting our industry.
