After considering all oral and written comments, the Committee will then release a Committee Final 2009 IEPR that will be considered for adoption by the full Energy Commission at its December 2, 2009, business meeting.

The Committee Draft 2009 IEPR is available on the Energy Commission's website at

The Committee is particularly interested in receiving input and potential recommendations on how the state should proceed to expedite successful implementation of the 33 percent Renewables Portfolio Standard, how to address the hybrid electricity market, and improving the electricity procurement process.


Senate Bill 1389 (Bowen and Sher, Chapter 568, Statutes of 2002) requires the Energy Commission to "conduct assessments and forecasts of all aspects of energy industry supply, production, transportation, delivery and distribution, demand, and prices. The Energy Commission shall use these assessments and forecasts to develop energy policies that conserve resources, protect the environment, ensure energy reliability, enhance the state's economy, and protect public health and safety." (Public Resources Code § 25301a). This assessment and associated policy recommendations are reported and adopted every two years. The 2009 IEPR has been prepared in response to this requirement.

In addition, SB 1389 directs state government entities to use the information and analyses contained in the adopted IEPR to carry out their energy-related duties and responsibilities. During the 2009 IEPR proceeding, the Energy Commission has coordinated closely with other agencies to ensure consistency in the underlying information used to develop this report.

The IEPR Committee held scoping hearings to seek input on specific topics for the 2009 IEPR on April 28, 2008, and June 3, 2008, and issued its Scoping Order on January 9, 2009 identifying the topics to be covered in the report. Beginning in November 2008, a total of 35 public workshops were conducted and several staff and consultant reports were developed. These documents, as well as stakeholder comments and workshop transcripts, are available at
