Webinar on Emerging Technologies: Innovative Water Heating Approaches

This event has passed. The event information on this page is for historical purposes only and links may no longer work.

On January 24, 2018 at 10:00 AM, California Energy Commission staff will host a one-hour webinar to share information on innovative projects focusing on efficient water heating technologies that can reduce fuel consumption and cut costs.


  • Gerardo Diaz, UC Merced, will discuss the design and demonstration of aluminum mini-channel solar water heating collectors for residential single/multifamily or commercial buildings.
  • Ryan Kerr, Gas Technology Institute, will discuss a rooftop air conditioning unit that takes waste heat from the air conditioned space and uses it to pre-heat hot water.

There will be a Q&A session following the presentations, and a bonus session after the webinar will provide information about the EPIC and Emerging Technologies programs, funding opportunities, and how to get involved.

This webinar is co-sponsored by the Emerging Technologies Coordinating Council (ETCC) whose members include Pacific Gas & Electric Company, Southern California Edison, San Diego Gas & Electric, Southern California Gas Company, Sacramento Municipal Utility District, Los Angeles Department of Water & Power, and the California Energy Commission.  The California Public Utilities Commission provides oversight of the activities of the ETCC. The EPIC program is the California Energy Commission’s research and development program.

All presentations and a recording of the webinar will be posted at:
