Document Description
CA has set aggressive goals to reduce GHG and to double energy efficiency. To do this, institutions must substantially increase deployment of distributed energy resource solutions. While scaling up DER solutions can simultaneously help buyers and sellers, there are barriers in connecting the two parties. For DER technologies companies to sell into institutional and commercial markets, they must navigate complicated institutional procurement processes, and procurement customers must overcome structural inertia to adopt new DER technologies. B/c of this, customer acquisition costs for DER sellers are far too high, and adoption rates for innovative technologies far too low. The purpose of this agreement is to fund a sustainable mentor/co-working program specifically geared towards bridging the gap between CA clean energy companies and institutional/commercial customers that rely on formal procurement processes to purchase DER solutions and packages.
