The Low Carbon Grid Study, which examines the feasibility of halving California’s electric sector emissions by 2030, is currently underway. Results from the first of the study’s two phases show that this magnitude of emissions reductions is possible with approximately no impact to utility revenue requirement, using a combination of strategies: a diverse renewables fleet, energy efficiency, flexible load, robust regional cooperation, and efficient use of natural gas resources. This webinar will feature the lead project manager of the study, who will review initial results, answer questions, and discuss plans for the second phase.
