E3’s Director of Policy and Strategy, Dr. Nancy Ryan, a former member of the California Public Utilities Commission, joined current Arizona and Hawaii Commissioners on a panel at the June 2014 Western Conference of Public Utility Commissioners in Seattle.

Dr. Ryan shared her views on California’s lessons learned from its current Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS) program and provided insights into challenges the state must overcome as it goes beyond the current 33% RPS target. Dr. Ryan’s main message to the western commissioners was that the region can realize a renewable future cost-effectively by building integration solutions into portfolios from the ground up. Dr. Ryan presented findings from E3’s recent study on “Investigating a Higher Renewables Portfolio Standard in California”.
