What Is Really Causing Renewable Project Failures in California?

@Sid Abma, Waste by very definition means left over or unused product at the end of a consumption cycle. As most consumption processes are unsustainable they chiefly depend on resources that are over used and continue to dwindle. In the strictest sense of renewable it could apply because we continue to generate waste, but is not purely renewable because it is inherently dependent on the clause mentioned previously. It qualifies only as “clean tech” because its use still emits green house trace gases. CA is right to exclude some clean tech like CCS, because the electricity price increases 30 to 50% for production. Storage is a huge issue as well. Even estimations that show 99% stability over 1 million years, does not mean that sequestration sites do not have to be monitored.
