Sustain OC accelerates sustainability and economic growth through innovation, collaboration and education in the greater Orange County region




Efforts to meeting the increasing energy needs of Southern California are undergoing a shift, with an objective of reducing energy use where possible while building and maintaining a more resilient, rugged and reliable power grid that utilizes a higher blend of renewable energy sources. Technology and innovation are already providing solutions that are being implemented, but there is much more to be done. New breakthroughs are needed along with assistance in deploying the many breakthroughs that have already been achieved. Sustain SoCal looks to support cleantech and clean energy firms, including start-ups, that can contribute to this effort, and has formed a working group where those firms and others with expertise in this sector can collaborate on accelerating clean energy solutions.

Sustain SoCal has been the Orange County partner for Energize California, one of four California Energy Commission–funded Regional Energy Innovation Clusters. The program spans four counties: Orange, Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara.

Energize California had two primary purposes:

  • Help bring new clean energy technologies to market that reduce ratepayer costs; and
  • Connect clean energy stakeholders across the region in order to strengthen the sector.
