Residential Energy Solutions
Co-hosted by Los Angeles Department of Water & Power, Sacramento Municipal Utility District and the California Energy Commission
This ETCC meeting will convene experts from industry, research, utility and government entities working towards solutions to today’s pressing residential sector energy challenges. Speakers will discuss energy efficiency in the context of California’s climate goals, innovative technologies to trim residential plug loads, advances to address existing homes and apartments based on recent building science and legislative developments, and the integration of distibuted generation with energy efficiency on the path to zero net energy residences.

Mark Fernandes, Emerging Technology Program Manager, Los Angeles Department of Water and Power
10:10 AM | Welcome Remarks & Overview of California's Climate Goals and the Importance of Energy Efficiency
California has set a goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030. Recent legislation has targeted the doubling of energy efficiency by 2030 for existing buildings and increasing investments for energy efficiency. New residential and commercial buildings will soon be ZNE. These efforts play a critical role in achieving the needed GHG reductions in California.
Laurie ten Hope, Division Deputy Director, Energy Research & Development Division, California Energy Commission
10:25 AM | Balancing the Load: Residential Plug Loads
Appliances and electronics use an enormous amount of energy in homes. California has multiple codes and guidelines on how technology can help limit this energy use. Hear about the newest technology designed to address this issue, and how product companies are tackling this challenge from the square one.
