50/50/50 by 2030: Transportation and the California Energy Challenge
Sacramento, California
June 10, 2015

In his 2015 Inaugural Address, Governor Jerry Brown outlined three ambitious goals for California to achieve by 2030: Increase electricity derived from renewable sources to 50 percent; reduce petroleum consumption by 50 percent; double the efficiency of existing buildings and make heating fuels cleaner.

This event with RealClearPolitics examined what needs to be done to reduce petroleum consumption by 50 percent. What is possible and achievable by 2030? How can California balance the climate and clean air goals while still meeting its energy requirements, transportation demands and economic development needs? And what innovations, clean technologies and alternatives will be the key to a successful plan.
