Electricity Future of Texas

The electric industry in Texas has been transforming itself, replacing coal-fired power plants with wind and solar farms, at a faster pace than the rest of the country.

This trend has been accomplished while keeping wholesale electric costs low and maintaining very high reliability. 


This talk will address questions such as : 
How is electricity produced in Texas, now and in the near future ? 
Why are renewable generation projects advancing so rapidly in Texas ? 
What are some of the challenges faced by planners to maintain high reliability while integrating non-dispatchable sources that depend on wind and sun ? 
How do wind and solar technologies work ?
