California's Nine Energy Policy Goals with 2020 Target Date


What does California have planned for the year 2020? An ambitious collection of energy related goals. Stoel Rives attorneys Ryan Waterman and Parissa Ebrahimzadeh explore nine California energy policy goals in an article entitled “California’s “Magic” Number: Nine Goals for 2020 and Where We May Go From There,” published in this Spring’s edition of Environmental Law News.

The article discusses the legislation enacted in California with regard to each goal, as well as the outlook for meeting each goal by 2020 and beyond. The goals include reducing GHG emissions to 1990 levels, reaching 1.3 Gigawatts of energy storage, reducing landfill use by 75%, and more.

While California may not fully meet all the goals set by 2020, there is little doubt that its efforts and progress will further California’s reputation as a national trend setter in several of these areas, not to mention better the state for the future in the process.
