Figure 19 | Climate Study: CLCPA Winter Generation by Resource Type
To reflect the CLCPA, all fossil-fueled generating resources were removed from the resource mix.
However, to preserve reliability, the study included an undefined Dispatchable Emissions-Free Resource (DEFRs) to supply the grid when wind, solar, and storage resources were insufficient to meet demand.
Resources with this combination of attributes are not commercially available, but will be critical to future grid reliability. In order to phase down the fossil fuel resources currently providing these services, new technologies will be needed.
