Ongoing Discussion
We've had a great online discussion so far on decarbonization and reliability, following OurEnergyPolicy’s webinar with Paula Gold-Williams (President and CEO of CPS Energy) and Gil Quiniones (President and CEO of the New York Power Authority [NYPA]).

Question 1: What are the main reliability challenges in decarbonizing the grid? Reply
"The main reliability challenges in decarbonizing the grid involve the intermittency of wind and solar power. This can, in-part, be solved by expanding and strengthening the transmission grid so that more renewable resources can be integrated. But relying on transmission will require excess capacity throughout the grid...."
- Philip Kahn, Co-Leader NYC Chapter, Citizens' Climate Lobby
"The challenge is to accommodate increasing share from intermittent renewables while maintaining reliability and to do so without unduly increasing the cost of electricity to ratepayers. Increasing long-distance transmission capacity… allows higher levels of intermittent renewables to be accommodated. …Deficits in one region can be made up by imports from another region." - Roger Arnold, Managing Director, The Roda Group 
Question 2: How can we best address these challenges while still making meaningful progress towards a cleaner energy system? Reply

Question 3: Do you believe that federal clean energy policies are required to fully decarbonize? Reply
