California Opportunities

for Procurement

California Opportunities for Procurement (Cal-OP) Accelerating Clean Energy (ACE)


The ACE Program is a $4M initiative co-developed by ZNE Alliance, Lawrence Berkeley National Labs, Energy Solutions, and Prospect Silicon Valley to connect best-in-class technologies to the largest institutional purchasers in California and nationally.


These Green Leadership Cohorts plan to purchase $500M+ of DERs and energy efficiency solutions in the 2018-2025 timeframe. 


  • Leadership Cohorts include the GSA, the California Department of General Services, DOD, the UC Office of the President, CSU, California K-12 Districts, utilities, and key private purchasers

  • Validated technologies will be integrated into Ecomedes -- a exclusive sustainable purchasing platform for the federal government, and the leading platform in many states, cities, and other large public and private purchasers
