The California Independent System Operator Corp. (California ISO) has begun offering a centralized way to track the latest developments in renewable power and smart grid technologies through a new Web tool at caiso.com.
‘As the ISO works in collaboration with the industry and stakeholders to create a cleaner, greener power grid, enormous amounts of data and discussion are generated,’ says Stephanie McCorkle, director for communications at California ISO. ‘To combat information overload, we decided to offer a way to access activities and analytical material.’
California ISO is supporting the state's goal to green the grid by working to provide wind and solar power more access to wholesale markets, reducing barriers to consumer-controlled demand response, performing sophisticated engineering analysis to identify key transmission projects and creating new ways for small renewable developers to finance their transmission access to the grid.
