California Clean Energy Procurement - Presented by Infocast




Meet the Buyers Live and In-Person

California Clean Energy Procurement Summit has been organized to let you hear directly from the state’s leading energy buyers — CCAs, munis and POUs, IOUs and corporate energy buyers — on the strategies necessary to achieve California's climate and clean energy goals and assess the impact of CPUC’s latest game-changing procurement order of 40GW of clean energy by 2032.

This is your opportunity to meet the buyers and hear their plans and goals for their upcoming procurements of clean energy, including renewables, storage, microgrids, transportation electrification, and offshore wind.

The California Clean Energy Procurement Summit will continue Infocast’s long-established status as the provider of choice for information on upcoming procurements and the ability to network face to face with an unparalleled range of energy buyers in the Golden State.

As have previous versions of this very successful meeting, we will deliver the latest on the developments you need to know on clean energy procurement, on the evolving IRP process, on the race to ensure Resource Adequacy (RA), the CPUC’s latest orders to ensure summer grid reliability and on the outlook for increasing opportunities in any aspect of clean energy.

Hear ALL of California’s Leading Clean Energy Buyers — CCAs, munis and POUs, IOUs and corporate energy buyers — discuss their upcoming procurements, how they intend to meet the CPUC’s 40GW order, and how renewables, storage, transportation electrification, microgrids and offshore wind fit into their strategies for meeting California’s clean energy goals.



Join us to:

  • Evaluate the progress on implementation of SB100 and its impact to date
  • Discuss the strategies and progress to meet CPUC’s latest orders to secure additional resources necessary to ensure to ensure summer reliability in 2022 and 2023
  • Obtain an analysis on whether the current IRP cycle and procurement track will be sufficient to meet goals adopted in SB 350 and California’s GHG reduction targets
  • Hear how the growing number of LSEs are incorporating storage and microgrids in their capacity procurement plans and what opportunities this opens up
