8th Annual Statewide Energy Efficiency Forum

June 14-15, 2017  •  Fresno, CA

The 8th Annual Statewide Energy Efficiency Forum was held June 14th-15th in Downtown Fresno, with pre-forum workshops and activities taking place June 13th. Over 280 participants attended the forum, representing a diverse set of sectors including cities, counties, local government partnerships, non-profit organizations, utilities, and private sector companies from across the state.

The 2017 Forum focused on Bridging the Gap, featuring topics that highlighted approaches and strategies that catalyze local energy and sustainability action to close gaps in planning to implementation, data and technology, policy to practice, urban and rural, and more. For the first time, organizers conducted an open call for session proposals to encourage participants to share innovative strategies and lessons learned that demonstrate how their agency is working to close gaps to save energy and achieve local sustainability goals.
