Community Choice Energy Summit - Presented by Infocast

Connect with Community Choice Aggregators

On the heels of its sold-out November gathering, Infocast is pleased to announce the second Community Choice Energy Summit: Southern California Edition for April 24-26, 2018.

The 2018 CCE Summit will feature an opening session on Sacramento policy and “state of play”, as well as a special session designed to provide CCA CEOs, Directors, City Mayors, and General Managers an opportunity to network and participate in high-level discussions. Other content will further explore power procurement and financial strategies for newer CCAs, PPA contract nuances for more advanced CCAs, strategies for developing local power sources, approaches for utilizing ratepayer data to create customer and community value, and other innovative programs and strategies designed to improve local sustainability while also creating local jobs. The meeting will include updates on the latest development in CCA EV infrastructure, DERs, demand response, energy efficiency and more.

Infocast’s second CCE Summit will provide unbeatable opportunities for the CCA community – including both operational and formative — to mingle with and hear from thought leaders, peers, partners, renewable project and DER developers, utilities, regulators, grassroots activists, experts and solution providers.
