The California Energy Alliance (CEA), a member-based organization committed to sustainable energy use within the built environment, has received a grant from the Energy Foundation.

“We are proud and humbled to receive this support from the Energy Foundation,” said Doug Avery, CEA co-chair. “The recognition that our organization is making an important contribution to California energy policy is rewarding, and the grant itself will make possible activities such as early-stage stakeholder engagement and code change proposals for California’s 2022 Building Energy Efficiency Standards that will help accelerate our ability to drive consensus-based policy developments.”

 "CEA represents a diverse and effective set of voices calling for straightforward building energy efficiency standards,” said Jose Carmona, program director of California Campaigns at Energy Foundation. “We look forward to partnering with them to advance cutting-edge technological solutions in the built environment that will generate good-paying jobs, spur local economies, and protect our natural resources. CEA is an effective and knowledgeable leader and we’re confident in their ability to inform the conversation as we seek to build a healthier, more equitable future."
