The UC Davis Energy Efficiency Center, California Lighting Technology Center, Western Cooling Efficiency Center and Greenwise Joint Venture are partnering up to present Smart Schools 2013, a one-day symposium on Sept. 5 on proven best practices for lighting and HVAC upgrades.

Representatives from K-12 schools across Northern California will engage in technology and financing workshops, “ask the expert” discussions, and a “vendor match” session for companies and schools interested in partnering on demonstration projects. School leaders will also present case studies of cost-effective retrofit projects already completed or underway.

Registration is $25 before July 1, $35 thereafter. Lunch is included.
