As a renewable energy leader, California has set the tone with ambitious decarbonization goals. However, the whole world is also watching when the Golden State’s grid goes dark during extreme weather conditions. In this webinar, presenters will discuss the pressure on California’s grid and how the state can avoid system unreliability during extended heat waves and droughts.

Join the Path to 100% discussion to learn about the latest PLEXOS power system modeling results, incorporating recent extreme weather data into the “Path to 100% Renewables for California” whitepaper. Experts will discuss what caused the blackouts, solutions and policy recommendations to rapidly, cost effectively and reliably decarbonize California’s electricity sector.
