For 2019, the AEE SoCal Annual Conference theme will be Energy Safety, Security, and Sustainability. Southern California in many ways is a microcosm of what will impact the rest of the nation. We have a co-existence of various industries like manufacturing, agriculture, transportation, aerospace, retail, hospitality, professional services, IT, and media, along with two of the largest ports in the country. Our chosen topics will undoubtedly be discussed for years to come, since it takes a collaborative effort for every piece of the puzzle to fit into place.
In Safety, we will discuss new technologies assisting our preparedness for and reaction to wildfires, gas leaks, and earthquakes. In Security, both physical and cyber-security will be considered to protect our critical infrastructures from attacks. For Sustainability, we will look at different ways that may contribute to reaching the ambitious goals of Net Zero Energy per SB100 and other local and federal mandates.
We welcome you to come and share your perspectives, along with many other members from the technical, academic, and legislative communities.
