CSE's Clean Energy Financing Advisory Council (CEFAC) will present a panel of experts exploring the growing market for energy storage technologies in partnership with the San Francisco Department of the Environment from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. on Tuesday, April 12, 2016, at the San Francisco Main Public Library.

The program and simultaneous online webinar are part of CEFAC’s statewide efforts to increase awareness of financing initiatives that support commercial and residential energy improvement projects, including energy storage technologies.

The event is primarily for local government officials, financial experts, energy improvement contractors, real estate professionals and others interested in promoting financing as a solution toward clean energy adoption. Admission is free and breakfast will be provided to all in-person attendees. Participants must register to attend in person or to view the webcast.

The CEFAC panelists will cover the evolving market for energy storage technologies that collect electricity, primarily in batteries, so it can be available to meet demand whenever needed.

“Energy storage, like financing, is a tool that can be leveraged to help property owners meet their energy goals,” said David M. Cohen, manager of programs and partnerships for Energy Upgrade California®. 

Speakers at the presentation include Mark Perutz, partner, DBL Partners; Amanda Li, associate, Generate Capital; Katherine Ryzhaya, chief commercial officer, Advanced Microgrid Solutions; and Robert Sanders, senior finance director, Clean Energy Group.
