The California Alliance for Renewable Energy Solutions, Inc. (CARES) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization working in partnership with labor, business, environment and community groups to support bulk energy storage projects as part of an effort to meet our state’s renewable goals, create a clean energy economy, and create well-paying jobs.
Green Energy in California
We are working to make California the world leader in renewable energy. To do this we need to rally support across the state to create an energy storage boom that will pave the way for California to reach 100% renewable power. This is what we do:
- Promote renewable energy development and use
- Facilitate the storage of large amounts of renewable energy for extended periods of time (“bulk storage”) to encourage the growth and sustainability of renewables
- Put more Californians to work supporting renewable energy
“Energy Storage is Essential To meeting California's Climate Change Goals.”
Patrick Sinclair | Executive Director, CARES
California produces the second largest amount of renewable energy in the United States. We are well on the way to achieving our state’s Renewable Portfolio Standard which mandates that California’s electric utilities must get 50% of their retail sales from renewable energy resources by 2030. We know California can do better. To reach a goal of 100% renewable we need to expand our capacity to store large amounts of renewable electricity for extended periods of time. Some call this “bulk storage.” The purpose is to have renewable power available to generate electricity when the sun isn’t shining and the wind isn’t blowing.
