We discuss Zac’s journey of getting involved with Cleantech San Diego & Beginning the Southern California Energy Innovation Network. We end by talking about where SCEIN is in the growth process with current goals and needs.

Cleantech San Diego is a member-based business association that positions the greater San Diego region as a global leader in the cleantech economy. As a nonprofit organization, Cleantech San Diego is uniquely suited to support the industry by fostering collaborations across the private-public-academic landscape, leading advocacy efforts to promote cleantech priorities, and encouraging more equitable investment across the San Diego region.
Cleantech San Diego’s stakeholders include more than 120 businesses, universities, governments, and nonprofits committed to advancing sustainable solutions for the benefit of the economy, the environment, and all members of the community.

The Southern California Energy Innovation Network (SCEIN) is a free program for startups that are developing solutions to help California meet its energy goals. The program provides access to the resources and facilities of a number of regional partner organizations (listed below) and connections with industry in order to accelerate the commercialization of emerging energy technologies.

To date, 62 companies have been served by SCEIN, 39 of which are currently active in the program. Together, these startups employ 629 people, have had 386 patents approved, and have raised over $300 million in follow-on funding from public and private sources since being accepted into the program.
The program is the result of a grant from the California Energy Commission awarded in 2016 to help advance California’s energy innovation industry.
