Policies To Reach 55 Percent Reductions by 2030 in California using the Energy Policy Simulator

Modeling using the California Energy Policy Simulator finds a handful of smart policy actions, including stronger clean industry policies, can achieve 55 percent emissions reductions in California by 2030. The analysis also finds these policies would add $55 billion to the state’s economy, create 235,000 jobs, and avoid $20 billion in climate and health damages. If California chooses to adopt a 55 percent by 2030 target, it would signal a new level of commitment, spurring other states and countries to strengthen their decarbonization programs.
