Renewable energy conference features speakers from the US, Sweden and Finland

California may be half a world away from places like Sweden and Finland but for the eighth consecutive year, San Diego will host a renewable energy conference on Nov. 15 that will feature a collection of policy experts, industry leaders and clean-tech innovators.

“We think the frame of mind in Southern California and Scandinavia is very much the same,” said Hans Janzon, president of the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce-San Diego. “We all try to be climate smart and have as small a footprint as we can.”

Called Green Connections 2018, the conference is open to the public and will be held at the San Diego Gas & Electric Innovation Center at 4760 Clairemont Mesa Blvd.

Topics include growth in renewable energy markets, developments in energy storage and demand response — that is, how consumers can affect the operation of the electric grid by reducing or shifting their electricity usage during peak periods. Twelve companies from Scandinavia are scheduled to take part in the conference.
