Southern California Clean Energy Innovation Ecosystem Roundtable Report
The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) hosted the Southern California Clean Energy Innovation Ecosystem Roundtable discussion on May 10, 2016 on the UCLA campus in Kerckhoff Hall. This roundtable discussion brought together 28 leaders from academia, local and state government, a national laboratory, non-profit groups, and industry to discuss Southern California’s clean energy needs as the state and region transition to meet their ambitious climate and energy goals.
The purpose of this report is to provide the United States Department of Energy (DOE) a comprehensive summary of the roundtable event, and to identify some broad conclusions and next steps for the Southern California region with regard to a clean energy pathway. All of this is being considered within the context of Mission Innovation (http://mission-innovation.net), whose goal is to accelerate innovation in clean energy and to make clean energy affordable around the globe.
