Empower Procurement, A California Energy Commission Initiative

What is Empower Procurement?

Empower Procurement is an initiative of the California Energy Commission, led by Prospect Silicon Valley, aimed at making the DER (Distributed Energy Resources) procurement process easier for buyers and sellers in order to accelerate the adoption of green technologies.

The adoption of technological innovation within a manual process is key to scaling and amplifying the impact of the solution. We have partnered with Empower Procurement to create a platform with buying options that leverage green energy efficient technologies for distributed energy resources (DERs) procurement. The intention of this platform is to give buyers easy access to product performance information that makes the sustainable and efficient choice the obvious one. The technology will allow the initiative to scale across market verticals including k-12 education, local government, small businesses and universities to maximize impact and create state wide adoption of energy efficient technologies.

If you are interested in learning more about this initiative, please reach out to us.
