The California Public Utilities Commission and the California Energy Commission unanimously agree with California Air Resources Boardâ??s recommendation to adopt requirements that by 2020 at least 33% of Californiaâ??s electricity needs be met by renewable resources.? With Governor Schwarzeneggerâ??s executive order directing all state agencies to work toward a 33% Renewable Portfolio Standard by 2020, it is now clear that 33% renewable energy is likely to become an important part of Californiaâ??s clean energy future.
The implementation of a higher amount of renewable generation offers many opportunities to the industry and fosters innovation in the areas of renewable technologies, storage technologies, and smart grid technologies.? However, there are significant barriers that must be overcome before the power system can be operated in a reliable and economic manner.
Barney Speckman will provide an insight into the present and future of renewable generation in California and discuss the challenges of achieving the 33% RPS target by 2020.? Mr. Speckman will also discuss the results of recent studies of the impact of high levels of renewable generation, and summarize some of the ongoing analysis work looking at the reliable and economic integration of renewable generation.
