How can new technologies help the state meet aggressive carbon reduction goals? Please join AWWEE's Bay Area Regional Team for a tour of the 600 kW system that powers Bloom Energy's manufacturing facility with a panel discussion and reception to follow. The discussion will focus on innovative technologies and the challenges faced today with the energy regulatory framework.

Panel members include: 

  • Erin Grizard, Director, Regulatory and Government Affairs, Bloom Energy
  • Mona Tierney-Lloyd, Senior Director, Western Regulatory Affairs, EnerNOC
  • Manal Yamout, Vice President, Policy and Markets, Advanced Microgrid Solutions

Panelists will discuss the current climate and opportunities in California for new and innovative technologies. State regulatory policies favor utility procurement of "preferred resources", clean technologies, and an expansion of AB32 emissions reductions. Governor Brown has also called for 50% procurement of renewable energy by 2030. While there appear to be openings for new technology, there are challenges as to how our infrastructure and regulatory framework will accommodate those new technologies. Join us to explore the role of innovation and technologies and how our industry can support their growth.

WHEN: Tuesday, March 10 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

WHERE:  Bloom Energy, 1299 Orleans Drive, Sunnyvale, CA

COST: Free for members; $35.00 for non-members
