California Public Utilities Commission

RETI History

  • Inspired by SCE Advice Letter (approved as modified by CPUC Res. E-4052) and two CEC PIER contracts, all looking at the same issues
  • 1st of its kind statewide collaborative study effort
  • Includes IOUs, POUs, CPUC, CEC, CAISO, renewable developers, federal land use agencies, environmental organizations, neighboring state commissions, and other interested parties
  • Commitment to open, inclusive, transparent process on an expedited schedule

10

slide11
California Public Utilities Commission

RETI Objectives

  • Provide a common forum for Commissions, utilities, and developers to examine the location and timing of new generation/transmission projects
  • Provide a common perspective for evaluating different technologies competing for limited system resources
  • Develop tools and analysis methods to evaluate renewables
  • Support and cooperatewith current transmission planning efforts
  • Statewide integrated transmission planning options to meet policy objectives

slide14
Phase I of RETI will, in 8 months (August 2008):

Identify renewable-rich resource areas in California and along its border

Confirm developable/commercial potential of competitive renewable energy zones (CREZs) through engineering review, i.e. slope, road access, obvious environmental barriers, etc.

Analyze the costs to develop each area, including:

Generation

Transmission

Capacity value

Grid integration costs

Least cost/best fit principles

RETI Scope of Work

California Public Utilities Commission

RETI Scope of Work

Most important aspects of Phase I:

  • We aren’t reinventing the wheel – we’re pulling together and building on pre-existing work
  • Focus on actual commercial potential – not another high level view
  • Consistent assumptions applied across the region
  • Stakeholders drive the process by validating the work of an independent consultant through consensus input
  • Goal is to rank CREZs through stakeholder consensus to reflect commercial potential, economics, and hard to quantify environmental, technological, and other concerns

California Public Utilities Commission

RETI Scope of Work
  • Phase II - Transmission owners and other interested parties will develop high level transmission pathways for the highest ranking CREZs using existing transmission planning organizations/institutions
  • Phase III – Goal is to use existing transmission planning institutions to collaboratively design transmission plans of service that will result in applications to construct new RPS transmission infrastructure

RETI Events

Steering & Plenary Committee Meetings (9/20/07)

  • “Kick-off” meetings to establish RETI process

Steering Committee Meeting (10/29/07)

  • Questioned what stakeholders need from RETI
  • Established Sub-Committee to develop CREZ selection/prioritization criteria

Next Steering Committee Meeting (12/17/07)

  • Consider proposed CREZ criteria
  • Discuss capacity and energy valuation factors
  • Address what stakeholders need from RETI
