The transition from coal and natural gas sources of electric power to wind and solar has utterly transformed how utilities think about the grid. The plan for how utilities will maintain grid reliability in the face of this transition flips everything upside down. Geof Syphers, CEO Sonoma Clean Power, will discuss how they are building an electric grid with less than 10 percent reliance on greenhouse gas emitting fuels by 2030.
