As you know, we hosted the Energy and Water Nexus Summit 2 on September 12 at the Aquarium of the Bay, an all-day event chock full of panels, speakers, and discussion.
We thank our generous sponsors for helping make this fabulous event possible, and we are extremely grateful to the expert speakers and panelists that took time out of their busy schedules to share their perspectives and knowledge on the issues at hand.
We had a beautiful venue and a great turnout. The Power Point presentations of each speaker and panelist are available in PDF on the Summit’s webpage, and video of the entire event will be posted on the same webpage this week!
Today, BPC also hosted a very successful and informative Expert Briefing on the South Bay Salt Ponds Restoration Project, held over lunch at the Port of Oakland. Thank you to the John Bourgeois and Brenda Buxton of the California Coastal Conservancy, and Rohin Saleh of the Alameda County Flood Control District for your presentations, and we thank all of those of attended.
The Power Point presentations are available on the Briefing webpage.
Due to our many upcoming events, this month we are not highlighting a member company.

Ocean Planning: How Will it Affect the Maritime Industry?
Ocean Planning is vitally important to protecting the health of our oceans and the viability of industries that depend on ocean resources. It can also mean increased restrictions and regulations, with potential impacts on maritime trade and the wider economy. This workshop will examine the planning currently taking place, and develop awareness of possible impacts to maritime trade, what we need to do to protect the maritime industry, and how the maritime industry can contribute to the ocean planning process.
Join us for one of the first-ever public workshops on Ocean Planning to be convened on the West Coast!
Speakers and Panelists Include:
- Anne Whittington, Port of Oakland
- Cat Kuhlman, California Natural Resources Agency / Ocean Protection Council
