WASHINGTON, D.C.— The Energy Management Association (EMA) and California Energy Alliance (CEA) have formed a strategic collaboration to further their common objective of the continuous optimization of building energy performance, and leverage their members’ collective expertise in the development of educational programming and providing input to policy makers.
“CEA is excited to collaborate with the EMA in the upcoming several months, as EMA members bring an important, building owner/operator perspective to the CEA work in developing energy policy,” notes Doug Avery, CEA Co-Chair.
One byproduct of the collaboration that will be highly visible in the near future is a 2-hour California Title 24 Code Roundtable at the CxEnergy Conference & Expo, April 6-9, 2020 in San Diego. The Roundtable will bring together voices from energy engineering, manufacturing, labor, and policy. EMA is a Presenting Organization at the event.
“We are delighted to welcome the California Energy Alliance as a Collaborating Partner of EMA and Supporting Organization of CxEnergy. We also look forward to the presentation they will provide on California energy codes and standards. CEA’s impressive depth on issues and diversity of membership will help ensure that CxEnergy has topical educational content for local attendees,” said Rusty Ross a Certified Energy Management Professional with EMA and president of its affiliated AABC Commissioning Group.
Founded in late 2016, the California Energy Alliance (CEA) unites representatives of a broad range of organizations concerned about energy and the built environment. As a member-based organization, CEA works to improve California’s energy future and the migration toward a carbon-free energy horizon. CEA focuses on the promotion and realization of deep energy savings, sustainable energy generation, and integration. The Alliance actively participates in the development and implementation of pragmatic, environmentally and economically sound building energy standards and other initiatives.
