The Pathway to 2050 event will be held in Sacramento, California on August 11, 2016. This annual event brings together advanced energy business leaders and policymakers to discuss opportunities to accelerate California’s economy through the growth of advanced energy.
At Pathway to 2050, there will be plenty of networking opportunities to meet with others in the advanced energy industry as well as state policymakers. Confirmed speakers include Kevin Self, SVP at Schneider-Electric; Michael Wheeler, VP, Policy, Recurrent Energy; Lawrence Lingbloom, Chief Consultant, California Assembly Natural Resources Committee; Commissioner Andrew McAllister, California Energy Commission; JP McNeill, CEO, Renovate America; and dozens more.

- Kate Galbraith, Assistant Business Editor, San Francisco Chronicle
- Dan Morain, Editorial Page Editor, Political Affairs Columnist, and Editorial Writer, Sacramento Bee
