AB 32 Energy Subgroup of the Climate Action Team
The Energy Subgroup of the Climate Action Team is one of eleven multiagency subgroups formed to provide recommendations to the ARB for consideration as the Board develops a plan to reduce GHG emissions in California. The CAT Subgroup on Energy is charged with identifying and evaluating GHG reduction measures related to electricity generation, combined heat and power, and electricity and natural gas end uses for residential and commercial purposes. (Use of electricity and/or gas for industrial purposes, and emissions involved in the extraction, refining, and transportation of fuels are discussed in the Industry sector.) These activities are responsible for approximately 34 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions in California. The ARB AB 32 Scoping Plan will lay out state policies and actions to meet the GHG reductions targets in AB 32, the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006.
