Mind the Gap: Policies for California's Countdown to 2030
Mind the Gap: Policies for California’s Countdown to 2030
If California is to meet its 2030 and 2045 climate change goals, the state must quadruple its annual rate of greenhouse gas reductions by adopting market-transforming policies and incentives that address historical inequities within the next one to two years.
Mind the Gap: Policies for California's Countdown to 2030 is Edison International's analysis of the policy changes and additions needed to ensure that California meets its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions 40% below 1990 levels by 2030 — a reduction that is essential if the state is to achieve its ultimate goal of a decarbonized economy by 2045. Our policy paper discusses where the state has made progress and which additional actions and outcomes are needed.
STATE AND FEDERAL POLICY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR CLOSING GAPS IN CRITICAL AREAS:
- Decarbonizing the power supply
- Preparing the grid for shifts in usage and increasing demands
- Electrifying transportation and buildings while increasing efficiency
