As California pursues its goal of 60% renewable energy by 2030 and 100% zero-carbon electricity by 2045, capturing and storing renewable energy resources will be critical in ending the state’s dependence on fossil fuels and meeting ambitious climate change goals.  In the San Diego region, cities are adopting climate action plans calling for 100% renewable energy by as soon as 2035.  Rapidly accelerating progress in energy storage is bringing us closer than ever to achieving a cleaner, more resilient grid and pollution-free transportation.  Join us as we explore a variety of the most innovative storage developments and deployments including:

  • Materials science research in the lab
  • Spin-off startup companies
  • SDG&E utility deployments
  • Large commercial and industrial customer deployments
  • Major investors and developers

We’ve partnered with Cleantech San Diego to provide an overview on energy innovation and storage, and to moderate the panel.
