Breakout sessions with panel discussions explore the process of creating a CCE, how CCEs boost local economies while enhancing sustainability plus support technology deployment. Experts will discuss how CCEs can play a vital role in achieving significant greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions while promoting distributed energy resources and local jobs. The Symposium will also emphasize how CCE’s can develop such programs rapidly, optimize results for local residents, and collaborate across jurisdictions to improve outcomes. Other presenters will discuss new disruptive technologies that will replace fossil fuel powered vehicles and appliances with more efficient and cleaner electric powered equivalents.
The Symposium presents Community Choice as a platform for innovation so it will include presentations on enhancing grid resilience through microgrid development, storage, and electric vehicle to grid storage applications. Among the timely topics addressed this year will be energy metering (NEM) policies, local energy resource plans, and a new CPUC ruling allowing collective use of virtual net metering for community solar arrays in disadvantaged communities.
