Integrated Resource Plans - GHG Planning Targets

banner

Background

In October 2015, the Clean Energy and Pollution Reduction Act (SB350) was signed into law. This law establised 2030 targets for energy efficiency and renewable electricity, among other actions aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) and reducing use of fossil energy. Specifically, the law increases California's renewable electricity procurement goal from 33 percent by 2020 to 50 percent by 2030. The law requires California to double statewide energy efficiency savings in electricity and natural gas end uses by 2030. To help ensure these goals are met and the GHG reductions are realized, large utilities are required to develop and submit Integrated Resource Plans (IRPs). These IRPs will detail how each large utility will meet their customers resource needs, reduce GHGs, and ramp up the deployment of clean energy resources.

In addition, SB350 directs ARB, in coordination with the Public Utilitiles Commission and Energy Commission, to establish greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets for the electricity sector and each load-serving entity. This process has initiated and will continue throughout 2017.
