CalFlexHub Symposium 2023
The 2023 CalFlexHub Annual Symposium, hosted on November 3rd, has concluded. This year’s Symposium was a hybrid event, with over 150 who joined in person at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and over 100 who joined remotely via Zoom. Many thanks to those who contributed their time and resources to attend and to all the speakers, presenters, and staff who made the event spectacular.
This year’s Symposium had a global reach with remote attendees from all over the world including Australia, Canada, the United States, Denmark, France, Germany, New Zealand, Russia, Israel, India, South Korea, Austria, Chile, Ireland, Luxembourg, and Pakistan. Participants represented over 100 companies, public agencies, academic institutions, social justice organizations, non-profits, advocacy groups, and other organizations. California’s public-interest investment is moving the needle in California, nationwide, and abroad.
The event brought together utility and industry leaders, academics, government representatives, workforce development professionals, community-based organizations, and researchers.
Keynotes were delivered from California Energy Commission (CEC) Commissioner Andrew McAllister and Department of Energy’s (DOE) Deputy Director of the Building Technologies Office, Ram Narayanamurthy; and presentations showcased project results; highlighted benefits and challenges in adoption among the disadvantaged and low-income communities; and underscored the importance of collaboration with utilities, the private sector, and manufacturers. Attendees dove deep into the myriad challenges and opportunities in load flexibility and celebrated incredible advancements in technology, policy, practice, and investment.
