arbcombo -- August 23, 2016: Public Workshop on the Energy Sector to Inform Development of the 2030 Target Scoping Plan Update

Posted: 09 Aug 2016 16:06:17
California Energy Commission (CEC), California Public Utilities
Commission (CPUC), and California Air Resources Board (ARB) are
jointly hosting a public workshop on the Energy sector on August
23, 2016. This public workshop will provide an overview and
update on the process to update the 2030 Target Scoping Plan, and
will include CEC, CPUC, and ARB staff presentations on current
and forthcoming initiatives that contribute to greenhouse gas
emissions reductions in the electricity, energy efficiency, and
natural gas sectors.  Staff will also provide preliminary
thinking on energy policy interaction across sectors, including
cross-sector trade-offs and synergies.

This workshop will support the process to update the AB 32
Scoping Plan to reflect Californiaís goal to reduce statewide
greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030, as
directed in Executive Order B-30-15.

The meeting is open to the public and full participation by all
parties is encouraged:  

DATE: Tuesday, August 23, 2016 
TIME: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
PLACE: California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC)
Main Auditorium 
505 Van Ness Ave
San Francisco, California 94102

Background
This Energy sector workshop is part of the public process to
update the Scoping Plan to reflect the Governorís Executive Order
B-30-15, which establishes a mid-term GHG reduction target for
California of 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030.  All state
agencies with jurisdiction over sources of GHG emissions were
directed to implement measures to achieve reductions of GHG
emissions to meet the 2030 and 2050 targets.  ARB was directed to
update the AB 32 Scoping Plan to reflect the 2030 target, and
therefore, is moving forward with the update process.  The
mid-term target is critical to help frame the suite of policy
measures, regulations, planning efforts, and investments in clean
technologies and infrastructure needed to continue driving down
emissions.

In an effort to further the vision of AB 32, Governor Brown
identified key climate change strategy pillars in his January
2015 inaugural address. The pillars recognize that several major
areas of the California economy will need to reduce emissions to
meet the 2030 greenhouse gas emissions target. Two of the key
pillars identified by Governor Brown were increase from one-third
to 50 percent our electricity derived from renewable sources and
to double energy efficiency savings from existing buildings by
2030.

A copy of the presentation and other workshop materials will be
available on the Scoping Plan webpage at:

Materials and webcast information will be posted by August 19,
