Join us for a live informative and interactive event to learn how to get involved in creating sustainable and affordable housing in your community by leveraging advanced clean energy technologies.


Participate in a discussion on the challenges and opportunities in developing new clean energy housing projects. The event kicks off with a diverse panel of experts and then join small group conversations about what’s happening in your region. Round out the event with one-on-one networking with other attendees on Hopin.


Our goal is to help community leaders, developers, and clean energy technology creators meet and learn from each other, starting conversations that can lead to collaboration opportunities. Since diverse participants bring different skills and knowledge to the table, this is an opportunity to listen, learn, and cross-educate. Discussions will explore cutting-edge energy technologies, construction practices, and meaningful community engagement supporting the advancement of sustainable housing that is affordable, equitable, emissions-free and resilient to climate change impacts and extreme weather events. This event is sponsored by the California Energy Commission.
