The Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC) Program’s annual symposium brings together leading policy makers, energy researchers, and technology developers, including recipients of EPIC grants, to spotlight the latest clean energy technologies being deployed in the state. This year’s virtual event offers engaging conversations with top government and private sector leaders focused on how recent state and federal investments are more rapidly and equitably advancing California’s transition to a clean energy economy. Gain insight into how new technologies can expand the construction of new long-duration energy storage, improve energy efficiency in buildings, accelerate the rollout of electric vehicle infrastructure, improve grid resiliency and flexibility, and more! Speakers will also highlight how these innovations specifically benefit and uplift under-resourced communities. Energy visionaries will give a behind-the-scenes look at emerging technologies and commercialization challenges and offer insights and strategies to overcome those barriers by using California’s premier clean energy entrepreneurship ecosystem. This symposium will be a valuable opportunity to connect with industry thought leaders, foster new partnerships, and explore future endeavors to bring critical energy technologies to market.


Participate in this year’s symposium to discover how EPIC is pioneering energy innovations and forging a brighter future for California!
