This week, Energy Innovation released new research evaluating California’s climate progress and identifying a policy pathway that would reaffirm California as a climate leader. This modeling showed the state is off track for its 2030 and 2045 climate goals and must triple its historic emissions reduction pace. Doing so would generate billions in new GDP and hundreds of thousands of new jobs statewide.
Updated California Energy Policy Simulator research finds California must more than triple its decarbonization rate to meet state climate goals. EPS modeling identifies a proven set of climate strategies that could cut emissions 47 percent, add $28 billion to the state’s economy, create 170,000 jobs, prevent 26,000 asthma attacks, and save households an average of $1,500 in 2030.
