Energy efficiency to drive California's 2050 CO2 target – report
Date:29 Nov 2011
CCS integral to California’s energy future
Improving energy efficiency will help California – the world’s eighth largest economy – meet one-third of its goal to drive greenhouse gas emissions down 80 percent below 1990 levels by midcentury, according to a new study. The report, published in the journal Science on November 24 by scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and energy consulting firm Energy and Environmental Economics (E3), analyzed the infrastructure and technology changes needed for the state to reach its 2050 goal.
