Event Details

This ETCC meeting will convene experts from industry, research centers, utility and government entities working to advance energy effiicency in the rapidly growing plug load field. The event will focus on policy drivers, emerging technologies and cutting-edge industry initiatives. Featured speakers will include research experts such as G.P. Li and Arthur Zhang from CalPlug, policy makers from the California Energy Commission and utility plug load program leads. These research, utility and policy-making perspectives will be united with three critical industry perspectives: a product vendor, a semiconductor microelectronics manufacturer and a plug load management voice.

Please note: the webinar portion of the ETCC Quarterly Meeting will end when the meeting breaks for lunch at 12:15 pm.  In-person participants will participate in the afternoon breakout sessions and have an opportunity to tour CalPlug’s research and demonstration facility, which features a green server room, set-top box demos, energy management demos, and more!
