The California Chapter of the Association of Energy Services Professionals (AESP) serves as a forum for members and other interested professionals to come together to network, inspire, and motivate. The chapter meets on a more formal basis quarterly, with events in Northern and Southern California, and less formally with smaller meet-ups more often. Chapter events are designed to bring together a wide-range of market actors responsible for advancing renewables and energy efficiency in California including program implementers, utilities, contractors, eco-entrepreners, equipment manufacturers and distributors, consultants, architects, non-profits, students, and those wanting to enter the energy industry.
If you are interested in becoming a member, have questions, or want to suggest ideas for future meetings, please email Patsy Dugger.

AESP California Chapter lunch and learn: Commercial PACE in California
Join us for lunch on June 3rd and learn more about Commercial PACE in California, via webinar or in person in Oakland and Los Angeles. Please RSVP by May 30.
Commercial PACE is gaining serious traction in California. PACE allows energy efficiency, water efficiency, DR and self-generation projects to be repaid on property taxes, creating an off-balance sheet vehicle that can be stacked with traditional financing, combined with utility incentives and used to recover costs from tenants. Learn how you and your customers can leverage this transformative tool to accelerate energy and water project adoption in retrofit, gut rehab and new construction applications and help the state close the gap on goals.

At our May event we learned about Big Data in the DSM space.
