Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:
California faces unprecedented challenges that could fundamentally alter the structure of its energy industry, but which are also opening up huge opportunities for future growth. PG&E’s bankruptcy and the impacts of grid-caused ignition have triggered enormous concerns about how to assure resilience, while the first round of SB100 planning identified an urgent need to procure over 3.3 GW of power to meet near-term resource adequacy requirements. What policy and regulatory changes are being implemented to deal with grid reliability and resilience to wildfires? Will the new all-source procurement by CCAs, public power and IOUs expand the lifespan of existing gas-fired generation, open up huge new opportunities for renewable energy and storage deployment… or both?
Only the most well-informed California energy players will be able to evaluate their best path forward. The 8th Annual California Energy Summit will bring together California’s top regulatory officials, utility and public power leaders, and developers to discuss:
- The state-wide implications of wildfire mitigation measures
- How $830 million of incentives will drive deployment of self-generation and storage to enhance resilience
- Near-term resource adequacy and long-term SB100 procurement needs of CCAs, public power and IOUs
- The expansion of interstate energy trading and transmission buildout needs
Don’t miss the Pre-Summit Executive Briefing: California’s Distributed Energy Future for an examination of California’s ambitious plans to incentivize the roll out of rooftop solar and socially equitable community solar, and how the reliability and resilience of the grid can be boosted through the deployment of distributed storage and microgrids.
