Title: California's Energy Future: The View to 2050
Url: http://autocaat.org/WebForms/ResourceDetail.aspx?id=1548
Publisher: California Council on Science and Technology
Description: In this two year study funded by the California Energy Commission and S.D. Bechtel, a committee of individuals from major energy research institutions in California develops strategies to meet Executive Order S-3-05. Executive Order S-3-05 requires California to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to 80% of 1990 levels by 2050. To accomplish this, CO2 levels will need to drop from 13 tons CO2e per capita (2005) to 1.6 tons CO2e per capita (2050) while the population continues to grow and energy use is expected to double. To offer a solution to this challenge, multiple “energy system portraits” are developed with combinations of nuclear, biomass, electricity, and fossil fuels with carbon capturing systems. It’s concluded by applying key aggressive strategies and investing in multiple technologies, implementations, research, development, and innovation, California can meet executive order S-3-05.
