LACI Power Day

Virtual Event

LACI Power Day is a celebration of the clean energy ecosystem in California that has grown out of bold policy commitments such as SB 100 and visionary utilities who are adopting clean energy solutions, storage and promoting transportation electrification. For this year’s LACI Power Day, we will showcase LACI startup companies from its Innovation program through a pitch competition and its Incubator program through a pilot project showcase. Additionally LACI will host panel discussions related to clean energy solutions in a post-COVID-19 world. This event provides an opportunity for interested investors and companies to gain a glimpse into the products that LACI startups provide and understand their potential for future commercialization success.
