California De-Carbonization Policy Drivers

Goals

Determine the main policy drivers of California's de-carbonization, air quality improvements, and electrification plans. The information will be used to define CA's sustainability goals and the drivers of the initiatives on de-carbonization via electrification.

Early Findings

California De-Carbonization Policy Drivers

Some of the policies in California that support initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are the following:

The Clean Power and Electrification Pathway

  • The Clean Power and Electrification Pathway is a cohesive initiative in California that aims to bring down "greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and air pollutants" by deploying initiatives in these three sectors of the state: electricity, transportation and buildings.
  • The Pathway will pile on the current state policies and incorporates various measures to present the best cost-effective and viable way towards the future.
  • By 2030, the policy aims to achieve the following: an electric grid that will be powered by "80% carbon-free energy," over 7 million electric vehicles on the state's roads, and usage of electricity to fire up one-third of space and water heaters in the growing number of energy-efficient buildings.
  • Public policies can then further enable the pathway through a well-developed consolidated resource allocation strategy that includes taking into account the end uses of fossil fuels and providing support to electrification initiatives.
