Remote Access Only
The California Energy Commission (CEC), Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), Southern California Edison Company (SCE), and San Diego Gas & Electric Company (SDG&E) will host a three-day virtual symposium, joined by more than 1,000 clean energy leaders to explore the latest technology and policy innovations that can enable the state to:
• Improve the affordability, health, and comfort of California’s communities.
• Build a safer and more resilient electricity system.
• Support California’s local economies and businesses.
• Advance zero-carbon technologies for homes, businesses, and transportation.
• Expand the use of renewable energy.
• Implement a more decentralized electric grid.
This symposium is part of the CEC’s administration of the Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC). The EPIC program invests approximately $160 million annually in new technology breakthroughs to transform the electricity sector to meet California’s energy and climate policy goals and bring increased benefits to electric ratepayers in the state’s three largest investor-owned utilities – PG&E, SCE, and SDG&E.
A quorum of commissioners from the CEC and California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) may participate, but no votes will be taken.
The symposium will be held remotely, consistent with Executive Orders N-25-20 and N-29-20 and the recommendations from the California Department of Public Health to encourage physical distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19. The public can participate in the event consistent with the direction in these Executive Orders. Instructions for remote participation are provided below.
