The California Independent System Operator Corp. (California ISO) has released an update of its five-year strategic plan titled "Smart Future," which reaffirms the direction the organization is taking to adapt to state and national economic forces, solve energy supply and delivery challenges, as well as manage workforce change.

Plan objectives promote excellence and transparency in grid and market operations, with strategies that ensure open and non-discriminatory grid access and enhances customer service.

A central tenant of the plan that the ISO board of governors approved at its March meeting is the organization's commitment to the monumental state, national and global objectives of reducing greenhouse gases by welcoming in a new era of advanced technologies, such as the electrification of automobiles, renewable energy alternatives and enhanced grid functionality.
