Green Energy Institute (GEI) invited to participate in Global Climate Action Summit

September 04, 2018

From September 12 through 14, climate leaders from around the world will convene in San Francisco for the Global Climate Action Summit. Co-chaired by California Governor Jerry Brown and Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, among others, the event will bring together elected officials, business executives, advocacy organizations, and investors to discuss topics such as transformative climate investing and inclusive energy systems. Leading up to the Summit, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), California Energy Commission (CEC), and California Air Resources Board (CARB) will host a series of practitioner workshops. GEI’s director Melissa Powers has been invited to participate in these workshops, alongside top leadership from the CPUC, CEC, and CARB and other domestic and international practitioners, for a robust discussion on tangible progress, concrete actions, and best management practices for decarbonizing, financing, and managing energy systems. GEI is honored to be a part of the event and look forward to hearing from the lineup of inspiring speakers throughout the week.
