The Clean Coalition is a partner organization for the Community Choice Energy Summit, which will take place on November 14-16 in Santa Clara, CA. Craig Lewis, Executive Director for the Clean Coalition, will participate in the panel titled, “Evolution of CCAs and Innovative DER and Local Energy Programs.”
Community choice aggregation (CCA) has demonstrated that communities can migrate faster to a clean energy supply, while also reducing energy costs. A handful of pioneering CCAs have done the hard work, and proved out the model. Now, an estimated 300 additional counties and municipalities in California and many more in other states are exploring the option as well.
However, forming and managing a successful CCA requires understanding legal, regulatory, and financial issues and skill in energy procurement management, risk management and managing relationships with utilities and regulators.
The Community Choice Energy Summit is intended to facilitate and accelerate the next wave of CCAs, within California and beyond. CCAs will learn from and share best practices with the CCA community. The summit will also provide networking opportunities for the CCA community to learn from clean grid innovators, developers, utilities, regulators, financiers, legal representatives, and other industry experts.
This must-attend event will help jump start the next rounds of CCAs and solidify the emerging business structures and practices, and help move communities toward their ambitious clean power goals.
