The California Energy Commission (CEC) Public interest Energy Research (PIER) Program has produced many high efficiency end-use technologies capable of substantially reducing energy use, costs, and environmental impacts. The State Partnership for Energy Efficient Demonstrations (SPEED) Program is one of the key connections to the market for the PIER Program, proving technology in the field, providing feedback to the product development process, and piloting technology deployment toward achieving energy efficiency at scale.

Karl Brown is the Director of the SPEED Program and Deputy Director of the California Institute for Energy and Environment. Karl will describe the SPEED team coordinated by CIEE, summarize the extensive portfolio of demonstrations, and mark progress toward achieving the market potential of demonstrated technologies in California. Karl will also provide three technology success stories illustrating the diverse and nimble approaches the Program takes in advancing technology adoption.
