Recent announcements and policy steps at local and state levels aim to advance commercial energy efficiency but key questions remain. Unlocking energy efficiency opportunities – cost savings, jobs potential and emissions reductions – will depend heavily on finance and disclosure strategies which effectively stimulate the market.
Brought to you by the City of San Jose, the Bay Area Climate Collaborative, Joint Venture: Silicon Valley Network and the Silicon Valley Leadership Group, this event will deliver in-depth regional insight and dialogue with industry and government leaders on challenges and opportunities for accelerating commercial energy efficiency through these innovative strategies. Bagels and coffee will be served.
