Business for Clean Energy
Through Business for Clean Energy (BCE), The Climate Center partners with businesses to build the clean energy economy. BCE is a membership program that convenes business leaders to advance practices and support policies favorable for the economy and the climate. Members also share initiatives they are pursuing to accelerate innovation and sustainability.
To garner business support for Community Choice Energy in Silicon Valley, we did extensive outreach, including a forum hosted by Cisco Systems attended by business leaders just before the first official public meeting on Community Choice in San Jose.
The Center organized its second Business of Local Energy Symposium in March 2016 in San Jose that covered topics such as public/private partnerships, deployable technologies, and innovations, and featured:
- 7 plenary speakers
- 42 break-out session speakers
- 350 attendees including business and elected leaders, state regulators, and energy/climate advocates
- Our third symposium is scheduled for spring 2017 in Long Beach. Also on the horizon is release of our analyses of the economic impact of Community Choice Energy for San Jose and for the San Joaquin Valley.
