      About the talk: This presentation will address electricity Demand Growth and the role of the CPUC in policy.  Expectations of electric demand growth are driven by where people are moving.  Further, electrification is becoming more important, e.g. Electric Vehicles and Electrification of rail.  The CPUC is concerned about system reliability as well as protecting the public interest in fair pricing.  As contracting meets or exceeds 33% energy delivery obligations, what is the next step for Renewable Portfolio Standards (RPS)?  How do reliability costs and benefits get traded off against other benefits?
