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.
The new Oregon Energy Policy Solutions model helps policymakers measure progress and design additional emissions reduction policies. Oregon EPS modeling finds more ambitious climate policies could cut emissions 74 percent and add $4 billion to the state’s economy by 2050.
U.S. Energy Policy Simulator 3.3.1 adds several new features covering the transportation and power sectors, and includes data improvements like an updated business-as-usual trajectory to reflect the American Innovation and Manufacturing Act as well as carbon capture and sequestration deployment.
The United States Energy Policy Simulator 3.3 update builds on the previously released version 3.2.1 by adding demographic breakdowns of premature mortality, improving the user interface, and adding policies to address domestic manufacturing and nitrous oxide emissions, among other improvements.
For the first time in history, Members of Congress have produced a comprehensive plan to decarbonize the entire U.S. economy, while bringing U.S. emissions to net zero by 2050. This brighter future is ours for the taking.

Energy Innovation’s California Energy Policy Simulator reveals the state is off track for its 2030 climate goal, but six policy fixes can hit the target.
A substantial new update to Energy Innovation’s peer-reviewed Energy Policy Simulator reveals which policies can reach net zero emissions in the United States, and what they mean for our economy.
The United States Energy Policy Simulator 2.0 update includes the ability to model net-zero emissions, new policies, and new fuels like hydrogen.
The Trump Administration could declare war on clean cars by freezing existing federal fuel economy standards and eliminating California’s ability to set its own tailpipe emissions standards. These moves would constitute grievous harm to the environment, public health, and U.S. economy – but how much?
