2019’s CA Renewable Energy Procurement Summit was organized to provide the perspectives of the state’s leading energy buyers on the CPUC’s recent game-changing integrated resource plan overhaul and the new procurement track. Reliability concerns called for immediate procurement of an additional 2GW peak capacity to significantly change the roles of diverse LSEs in the California market. As the state continues to add more renewables to the grid to reach 2045 targets, LSEs will be faced with the challenge of understanding each other’s roles, navigating the regulatory landscape, and planning for the future.
