This Initiative is a collaborative effort to grow California’s VGI market.

The initial scope of the Initiative will be:

  1. Identify and assess opportunities in which VGI can create value from multiple market participants’ perspectives
  2. Identify regulatory, labor, or industry market barriers to realizing VGI value creation, and
  3. Provide recommendations on the market or policy actions needed to more appropriately value, procure, or put into operation VGI resources.

The Initiative begins with a focus on California but with an aim to support VGI across the US and internationally.

This Initiative was convened and facilitated by Gridworks, beginning in March 2019. Here is the result of this process: VGI Framing Document
