Cities, states, and countries around the world are setting ambitious renewable energy targets, with the ultimate goal of 100% clean or renewable power. To succeed, they need to not only increase renewable generation, but also rapidly reduce the use of fossil fuels — and creating a plan to get there can be harder than it appears. That’s why today Wärtsilä is announcing their efforts to put together an international community of renewable energy experts, researchers, business leaders and journalists to power its Path to 100% initiative.
Aniella Descalzi is an Executive and Renewable Energy Consultant. She is currently pursuing her MBA with a focus on energy markets and regulation at Fundação Getulio Vargas and holds a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from the Universidad de Chile. She is fluent in Spanish, Portuguese and English.
If California is to reach its renewable energy and emission targets as quickly and inexpensively as possible, some key policy issues will need to be addressed. Energy experts will explain the issues as outlined in an updated white paper during a webinar, Advancing California’s Faster, Cheaper Path to 100% Renewable Power, hosted by Wärtsilä on 5 May 2020.
