2020 Energy Innovation Conference Highlights
ECA Conference

This past Conference was held on February 28th, 2020 at UCLA Anderson's newest state-of-the-art, LEED Platinum facility, Marion Anderson Hall.

Under the threat of wild fires, power shortages, increasing energy costs, and carbon emissions, California's energy infrastructure is in dire need of modernization. Our 2020 conference focused on the innovation currently underway to combat the challenges facing California's grid and modernize the infrastructure for a more sustainable future. We brought in speakers from major grid controllers, boutique energy providers, energy project financing firms, and more!
