LACI Fall Power Day 2022
Join us on October 6, for LACI’s Fall Power Day 2022, streaming live!
LACI’s Power Day is a celebration of California’s clean energy ecosystem and brings together LACI Incubation Program startups, policymakers, industry leaders and advocates to discuss the latest advancements and barriers in the clean energy sector. Join us as we showcase our latest cohort of startup companies and highlight their milestones and contributions to clean technology solutions and pilots providing social, economic and environmental benefits throughout the greater Los Angeles region.
This year, Power Day will focus on the newest clean energy initiative for LACI and our partners – developing a large virtual power plant in the Greater Los Angeles Region.
We hope you will participate in this power-packed showcase of progress toward our shared priority areas in clean energy, zero emissions transportation, and sustainable cities.
