Integration of Wind and Solar Energy in the California Power System: Results from Simulations of a 20% Renewable Portfolio Standard

Published 25 April 2016 | By Energy Exemplar

California’s existing Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS) requires utilities to supply 20% of all consumed electricity from eligible renewable resources by 2010. Compliance with the RPS is now anticipated in the 2011-2012 timeframe, with the exact timing dependent on load growth, contract implementation, and other factors (CPUC 2010a). The majority of new renewable generation capacity needed to realize this goal will come from additional variable energy resources, primarily wind and solar technologies.
