Berkeley has been chosen as the site of the California Institute for Energy Efficiency's fourth annual conference, to be held in late July. The three-day event is designed to communicate the latest developments in energy-efficiency research to CIEE's sponsoring organizations, utility representatives, and researchers. Although CIEE's overall goal is to increase California's energy efficiency, past conferences have also attracted non-Californians interested in CIEE as a model of how a national lab, universities, and industry can work together.
Established in 1988 by the University of California in collaboration with LBL, CIEE develops technologies that will increase the efficiency of California's energy services, thereby sustaining the environment and the economy. Today, the CIEE partnership comprises California's electric and gas utilities, the California Energy Commission, the California Public Utilities Commission, and the U.S. Department of Energy, in addition to UC and LBL. These organizations provide financial support and guidance to help CIEE fund and manage a multiyear research program and several one-year exploratory projects focusing on buildings, industry, and transportation.
