Reaching renewable energy goals 5 years early while saving billions
California is leading the way to a cleaner, green power generation future. As the state marches closer to 100% renewable portfolio standard for power generation, there will be challenges at a system level. Join as we review intensive power system models and discuss the optimal path forward to a 100% renewable energy future in California.
In this webinar, power-system experts Jussi Heikkinen, Antti Alahäivälä, and Joe Ferrari will present Wärtsilä’s in-depth Plexos® model and study for California to meet net-zero carbon by 2040 while simultaneously minimizing air emissions, land use, and energy costs relative to that envisioned with current plans. This study was developed as part of Wärtsilä’s Path to 100% initiative, which strives to explore ideas, questions, and solutions on how to build a sustainable energy future and find a realistic path forward to a 100% renewable energy system.
