Subject: BECI & i4Energy Symposium (Nov. 6, 2014): Enabling Technologies 
for the Next Generation of the Intelligent Energy Infrastructure
Date: Fri, 17 Oct 2014 10:19:00 -0700


*Symposium:  Enabling Technologies for the Next Generation of the
Intelligent Energy Infrastructure*

*Hosted By:  Berkeley Energy and Climate Institute (BECI) and i4Energy*

*When:  Thursday, November 6, 2014, 8:30am-4:00pm*

> *Symposium will be recorded and uploaded to YouTube*

The *Berkeley Energy and Climate Institute* <http://beci.berkeley.edu/>
* (BECI)* is a coordinating hub for energy and climate research at UC
Berkeley. BECI fosters collaboration between UC Berkeley, the Lawrence
Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) and other external partners. The
Institute promotes interdisciplinary research by integrating science,
technology, business and policy. BECI is dedicated to advancing 
innovation, and new educational programs to cultivate the next 
of energy innovators.

The *i4Energy* <http://i4energy.org/> is a nexus, bringing
multi-disciplinary minds together to create information technology 
for our multi-layered energy challenges.  *i4Energy* is a vibrant 
of researchers and innovators, rooted in its three founding 
the University of California’s Center for Information Technology 
in the Interest of Society (CITRIS <http://citris-uc.org/>), the 
Institute for Energy and Environment (CIEE <http://uc-ciee.org/>), and
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL <http://eetd.lbl.gov/>). 
partners in industry and government, this powerful research 
is focused on creating an integrated information infrastructure that 
transform our energy grid into a cooperative, “aware” energy network 
is both efficient and able to use sustainable energy sources.

The Symposium will present on-going energy research at the *Berkeley
Climate Change Institute, i4Energy *and partner organizations.  Sponsors 
the research include the CEC, DOE, NSF, and private industry.
