Purpose of Workshop

This workshop will include an update on CARB staff’s proposed methodology to establish greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reductions planning targets for the electricity sector as part of the IRP process pursuant to SB 350.  The work undertaken to implement SB 350 is a joint agency effort between CARB, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and the California Energy Commission (CEC), and informed by work already completed by CARB, CPUC, and CEC.

On October 7, 2015, Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. signed SB 350 into law. SB 350 requires load-serving entities under the jurisdiction of the CPUC and qualifying publicly owned utilities (jointly, retail electricity providers) to develop IRPs that meet GHG emission reductions planning targets established by CARB in coordination with CPUC and CEC. The GHG planning targets are to be developed for the electric sector as a whole and for each retail electricity provider.
