A multi-million dollar initiative in Californian is aiming to support clean energy innovations.

The Energize California programme, backed by $5 million in funding from the California Energy Commission, will be the goto place for pioneers to connect with key decision makers from industry, academia and government.

“You never know where the next great clean energy idea will come from,” said Energy Commission Chair Robert Weisenmiller, “but having a centralized program like Energize California, where innovators can easily network with academia, industry, business and professional development resources, greatly enhances the chances of that happening here in Southern California.”

The US State also wants to transform its busy freeways into clean energy providers, as it continues its drive to help deliver a sustainable future.
