Roundtable Series

SEEDZ EPIC Pre-proposal Roundtable Series

February and March, 2014

Description

Several hundred million dollars in ‘smart energy’ research and deployment grants are being made available under California’s new EPIC program in the coming months. For a high-level presentation of the EPIC program and its relevance to SEEDZ please see SEEDZ EPIC Overview Presentation.

We have planned a series of seven EPIC Pre-proposal Roundtables for interested SEEDZ participants during February and March. The seven roundtables are organized by EPIC funding area: building energy efficiency, electric vehicles, demand response and customer-side storage, distributed generation, grid monitoring and DER integration, innovation cluster, and community and training.

The goals of the roundtables are to:

  • convene SEEDZ organizations interested in possibly pursuing EPIC grant funding in a given funding area.
  • review specific related initiatives as currently defined by the CEC.
  • engage in a group discussion of related experience, priorities, and possible proposal approaches and teaming roles.
  • help participants determine degree of fit and interest in teaming to pursue specific EPIC grant opportunities going forward
