    Energy Storage to Play Key Role for California to Reach Target of 100% Zero-Emission Electricity by 2045

    SACRAMENTO, Calif., Sept. 10, 2018 -- The California Energy Storage Alliance (CESA) applauds the California State Legislature for passing landmark Senate Bill (SB) 100, making California the largest U.S. state to set such an aggressive zero-emission electricity target. Since 2010, California has procured 1,514 MW of new energy storage capacity to support the grid – by far the most of any state. SB 100 would mandate 100% zero-emission electricity by 2045, with 60% renewables to be achieved by 2030. The bill now awaits the signature of California Governor Jerry Brown, who could sign it into law this week at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco. The bill will update SB 350, passed into law in 2015, that requires retail sellers and publicly owned utilities to procure 50% of their electricity from eligible renewable energy resources by 2030. California efforts to date have been so successful that state legislators believe more aggressive targets are achievable.
