Join the California Council on Science and Technology for an upcoming briefing on our Energy Primer, Key Challenges for California’s Energy Future, presented in partnership with the California Latino Capitol Association Foundation, the California Legislative Black Staff Association, and the Asian Pacific Islander Capitol Association.

Key Challenges for California’s Energy Future covers 8 of the thorniest challenges along California’s path to a net-zero economy by 2045. This primer was originally released in June 2023 but has recently been updated to reflect key policies passed during the 2023 legislative session. Steering Committee members Jane Long (Chair, CCST Distinguished Expert), Michael Mastrandrea (Stanford), Colin Murphy (UC Davis), and Arun Raju (UC Riverside) will discuss this resource and provide a high-level summary of California’s energy transition and each of these 8 challenges. There will be ample time provided for audience questions.

This in-person briefing (no remote attendance possible) will be held in room 100 at the Legislative Office Building (1020 N Street, Sacramento, CA 95814).
