Sets interim targets for zero-carbon electricity—90% by 2035, 95% by 2040, and 100% by 2045. Requires all state agencies to procure 100% clean energy by 2035.
Sets goal of achieving net-zero GHG emissions no later than 2045 and reducing GHG emission 85% below 1990 levels by 2045.
CARB Draft 2022 Scoping Plan (2022)
Assesses progress toward 2030 emissions target and lays out path to achieving carbon neutrality no later than 2045.
The 2021 SB 100 Joint Agency Report reviews the policy to provide 100 percent of electricity retail sales and state loads from renewable and zero-carbon resources in California by 2045 and includes results from capacity expansion modeling, makes recommendations, outlines analysis, and presents actions by the joint agencies.
The California Energy Commission assesses energy issues California is facing to meet climate, clean energy, air quality and other environmental goals.
This document outlines goals, achievements, and progress California is to implementing the bill requirements in SB 350
2018 Legislation (SB 100)-- California Renewables Portfolio Standard Program: emissions of greenhouse gases (2018)
Legislation to regulate emissions of greenhouse gases that extends and expands the existing state RPS . SB 100 requires a planning and progress report from the three state agencies—the CEC, California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), and California Air Resources Board (CARB)—to be filed every four years.
Set a goal of statewide carbon neutrality by no later than 2045, with net negative GHG emissions thereafter.
Deep Decarbonization in a High Renewables Future: Updated Results for California Pathways Model (2018)
The California Energy Commission (CEC) funded a notable economy-wide deep-decarbonization study (by consulting firm Energy + Environmental Economics) that looked at 10 Scenarios to cut GHGs 40% b 2030 and 80% by 2050.
This legislation requires CPUC to focus energy procurement decisions on reducing GHGs by 40 percent by 2030 to achieve a least 50 recent renewable energy procurement, doubling energy efficiency, and promoting transportation electrification.
