Register for the Smart Schools Symposium


The UC Davis Energy Efficiency Center, Western Cooling Efficiency Center and the California Lighting Technology Center and in collaboration with Greenwise Joint Ventures would like to cordially invite you to a Forum that is focused on retrofitting and revitalizing K-12 educational facilities with energy efficient solutions and best practices.

With the passage of Proposition 39, schools may soon have new opportunities to make energy efficiency improvements. With entire buildings in need of attention, what should be addressed first?

This symposium will offer information and insights on creative financing for cost-effective retrofit solutions that can be completed without major renovations.


Who should attend?

This event is designed for a range of school leaders, including facilities managers, business officers, superintendents, principals, and school board members. WCEC affiliates and partners are welcome to attend the event, sponsor a booth, and/or present on specific HVAC topics that will be determined soon. Contact Paul Fortunato (pfortunato -at- ucdavis.edu) if you are interested in presenting at the Forum, or contact Liz Salmi from Greenwise to sponsor a booth.

Sign up to receive updates on symposium agenda and confirmed speakers.

  • Energy efficiency experts will provide objective, evidence based recommendations for lighting and HVAC upgrades that improve both the quality and efficiency of school facilities.
  • Financial professionals will also be on hand to share their expertise and guidance.
