Renewable Energy Beyond 2020: Next Steps for California

A lunchtime discussion on options to expand renewable energy deployment past California's 2020 goals.

UCLA School of Law, Room 1447


RSVP by Friday, November 15th  

California is on pace to meet the goal of securing 33 percent of the state's electricity from renewable sources like solar and wind by 2020.  As we approach this milestone, questions have emerged regarding the future of renewable energy in the state.

• What energy goals should policy makers begin considering now to help sustain the momentum?

• How can policy makers ensure that continued renewable deployment helps the state achieve its overarching greenhouse gas reduction goals?

This event will discuss these issues and offer ideas to address the challenges.  UCLA and UC Berkeley Schools of Law will also release a joint report at the event on this topic, entitled "Renewable Energy Beyond 2020."
