The California Energy Commission is holding a series of workshops throughout the state in the next month to discuss and gather input on the 2019 California Energy Efficiency Action Plan.
The 2019 plan, which will update the Existing Buildings Energy Efficiency Action Plan, will update efforts to double statewide energy efficiency savings by 2030 and maximize the contribution of energy efficiency savings in disadvantaged communities. The plan will address existing building energy efficiency, barriers to energy efficiency for the low-income and disadvantaged community, and using efficiency to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in buildings.
Information gathered at the five workshops, which are scheduled for April and May, will be used to develop the plan. Highlights from the plan will be included in the 2019 Integrated Energy Policy Report.
The dates and locations for the workshops are:
• April 9 at the California Public Utilities Commission, 505 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco
• April 15 at the Redding Electric Utility, 3611 Avtech Parkway, Redding
• April 25 at the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District Governing Board Room, 1990 East Gettysburg Avenue, Fresno
• April 30 at the Southern California Regional Energy Network, 901 West Olympic Boulevard, Los Angeles
• May 1 at the San Diego Public Utilities Department MOCII Auditorium, 9192 Topaz Way, San Diego
Workshop topics include efficiency in the multifamily, industrial, and agricultural sectors; building decarbonization, and building energy standards.
