The annual EPIC forum is one of the best places to hear about what the California Energy Commission is doing with its $130 million in Electric Program Investment Charge funding. Historically everyone would converge on Sacramento for a convention bringing together a diverse set of industry leaders to share best practices, learn about emerging technology, and connect about future projects and partnerships.

You can read about how 2019 and 2018 went and see how much they impacted the future.

Now it has gone online.  You can register here. They are focusing on having several break-out discussion sessions to capture that networking feeling. Join in on September 2-3 for the first virtual CEC EPIC Forum to explore strategies to achieve zero net carbon in the built environment.

The lightning talks look exciting with several of our regional companies participating. Attendees will explore exciting industry advancements, learn what challenges exist in scaling them, and opportunities California and businesses can pursue to accelerate building decarbonization across all communities. As you register you can learn more about the agenda.

California’s goal to reach carbon neutrality in the energy sector by 2045 is a challenge that brings a unique opportunity to reimagine everything. This year the EPIC forum looks at carbon neutrality in new and existing building development. Using advanced technologies, new practices in architecture and construction, enhanced load flexibility, and incorporating innovative policy and financing models, California’s innovators are developing the blueprint to create super-efficient, all-electric buildings powered primarily by onsite renewable energy and capable of supporting the larger electric grid.

The EPIC Virtual Forum features, panels, breakouts, networking, and virtual exhibits.  If that excites you and you want to join the future, register here.
