In light of recently released 2016 covered emissions data for Californian entities, the emissions covered under CP1 registered a decline of 13.04% when compared to last year. Combined CP1 and CP2 covered emissions registered a fall of 4.78% between 2015 and 2016.
This decline is the consequence of a sharp drop in emissions from electricity generators and importers as renewables contributed to a larger share of power generation last year.
California’s in-state hydroelectric generation doubled from 13,992 GWh in 2015 to 28,977 GWh in 2016. As hydroelectric generation increased in 2016, natural gas-fired electric generation was proportionally displaced. A significant double-digit growth rate in both solar PV generation and wind generation also pushed back the electricity generation from non-renewable sources.
