California's Energy Future - The View to 2050
COMPLETED: January 2015
California has set itself some ambitious goals for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the coming decades. In order to achieve these goals, the state may need to make widespread changes to the ways in which it manages energy production, storage, and consumption.
The California's Energy Future (CEF) projects explore what's needed to meet the state's goal, answering the call of S-3-05 - the executive order from 2005 mandating the reduction of the state's emissions to 80 percent below the 1990 level by 2050.
Following completion of the CEF projects, CCST began a followup series of reports, the California's Energy Future Policy project.
