As part of the Business Meeting to be held on December 16, 2009, the Energy Commission will consider adopting the Committee Final 2009 Integrated Energy Policy Report (2009 IEPR). The document is posted on the Energy Commission website at: www.energy.ca.gov/2009_energypolicy/.

Background

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 § 25301[a]). This assessment and associated policy recommendations are reported and adopted every two years.

On September 30, 2009, the IEPR Committee published the Committee Draft 2009 IEPR, and on October 14, 2009, held a hearing to solicit public comments on the report. The Committee Final 2009 IEPR reflects the Committee's consideration of oral comments presented at the workshop as well as written comments received from 30 parties.
