The Chamber hosted a successful Renewable Energy Integration Summit with approximately 50 business owners and industry professionals.
As the State of California continues to lead the nation in its aggressive advancement of clean energy, the Summit was an excellent moment for solar business owners, energy consultants and energy service providers – including San Diego’s largest energy utility, SDG&E – to discuss strategies for achieving the required reduction of greenhouse gases as set by AB 32.
The summit began with a panel featuring renewable energy experts:
- Arne Olson, Partner, E3
- James Newcomb, Managing Director, Rocky Mountain Institute
- Sachu Constantine, Director of Policy, Center for Sustainable Energy, and
- Mike Evans, General Manager, Regulatory Affairs, Shell Energy North America.
Following the panel presentations, summit attendees dove into the different energy opportunities and challenges faced at the regional, state, national and global level.
The Chamber’s Energy & Water Committee meets regularly to discuss how San Diego’s business community can effectively advocate for essential, cost-effective energy infrastructure. For more information or to get involved, please contact us by using the form below.
