cc -- Feb 6 Meeting of AB 32 Program Design Technical Stakeholder Work Group Posted: 25 Jan 2008 17:02:39
Air Resources Board AB 32 Scoping Plan Program Design Technical Stakeholder Working Group Meeting on February 6, 2008. February 6, 2008 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Sierra Hearing Room, 2nd floor of the Cal/EPA Headquarters Building 1001 “I” Street in Sacramento, CA The first in an ongoing series of program design technical stakeholder meetings will be held from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on February 6, 2008 in the Sierra Hearing Room at the CalEPA building in Sacramento. This series of meetings is being held in order to provide interested stakeholders the opportunity to provide input concerning various elements of the program design that will become part of the AB 32 Scoping Plan. AB 32, the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, requires the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to prepare a Scoping Plan for achieving the maximum technologically feasible and cost-effective reductions in greenhouse gas emissions by 2020. Development of the Scoping Plan will include an analysis of potential emission reductions across all sectors. The February 6 meeting will provide a description of the set of policy scenarios that are being developed for the initial round of modeling using Energy 2020 and E-DRAM. CARB is developing these scenarios to describe a range of possible approaches to implementing AB 32, such as use of a carbon fee, use of a cap and trade program, or reliance on direct regulations on emission sources or industrial sectors. After input from stakeholders at this meeting, CARB will finalize a small set of policy scenarios to model in time for discussion at the planned April 4 Scoping Plan scenarios workshop. Workshop materials and an agenda will be posted prior to the meeting at ARB’s Climate Change website (http://www.arb.ca.gov/cc/cc.htm) and made available in hard copy at the meeting. At this website, you may also join our electronic mailing list to receive further notices of ARB activities and public meetings related to the implementation of AB 32.
