The California Energy Commission (CEC) will host a workshop to provide an update on actions to support electric grid reliability, including the Midterm Reliability Analysis and incremental efficiency improvement potential for natural gas power plants. This work is being performed in collaboration with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to help inform a preferred system plan decision expected later this year. A quorum of commissioners may participate, but no votes will be taken.
Commissioners from the CPUC may also attend. If CPUC commissioners are present at the workshop, the CPUC’s rules governing ex parte contacts with commissioners and their staff remain in effect although this is a CEC-initiated and -noticed workshop.
The workshop will be held remotely, consistent with Executive Orders N-08-21, to continue to help California respond to, recover from, and reduce the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. The public can participate in the workshop consistent with the direction in the executive order.
