Evening Forum

Electrification and building decarbonization are key practices to reducing our reliance on fossil fuels and reaching a more sustainable and resilient California. But adopting these practices also means managing a considerably increased load on the electric grid. Can the state meet this increased need with new sources of renewable power, like offshore wind farms, and create a resilient grid with California-made lithium batteries? And how can we ensure that the health and economic benefits of these new advances benefit everyone? Join us for a conversation with the head of the California Energy Commission about how we can both electrify and decarbonize our buildings and our transportation sector to realize a cleaner future for all.

Co-presented by Climate Center.
