Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) November 01, 2014
Within the electricity sector in California, the transmission system needs reinforcing and reconfiguring - to manage flows of renewable power from regions that did not support large generating capacity in the past, such as the southern desert regions. Current in-state generation is dominated by natural gas fired plants, but there is massive solar potential and solar capacity, based on both solar photovoltaic and solar thermal, is growing rapidly. Deregulation of the electricity sector in 1996 led to major instability within this system in 2000 and 2001, but new measures introduced soon afterwards appear to have stabilized market operations now.

California is the third largest state in the USA, and the state with the largest population, while the state GDP is equivalent to that of the Russian Federation or Italy. California has significant oil reserves and small quantities of natural gas, but is a net importer of both. California also has extensive renewable resources including hydropower, solar power, geothermal reservoirs, wind and biomass. At the forefront of the drive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the state government has established a renewable portfolio target of 33% renewable generation by 2020, and the three biggest utilities have already reached 20%. However, achieving the 2020 target will mean both building more renewable capacity within the state, and importing from outside. California is already the largest importer of power from other states, and imports could potentially rise. Complete report available @ http://www.marketreportsonline.com/354622.html.
