2008 Annual Report to the Legislature and Appendix

The California Energy Commission adopted the Renewable Energy Program 2008 Annual Report to the Legislature (2008 Annual Report) and Appendix at its October 22, 2008 Business Meeting. The final adopted report is now publicly available.

The 2008 Annual Report responds to a legislative directive to report annually on the results of the Renewable Energy Program's activities and status of funding. The comprehensive 2008 Annual Report covers the period of July 1, 2007, through June 30, 2008.

With the Renewable Energy Program's efforts now encompassing the state's Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS) goals and the importance of decreasing greenhouse gas emissions, the report's Executive Summary provides information on the program's progress in meeting RPS goals. In addition, key renewable energy legislation and policies are highlighted and provide a framework for discussion of the Renewable Energy Program's activities and accomplishments.

Specifically, the 2008 Annual Report includes information on the fiscal and functional aspects of the Renewable Energy Program: allocation of Renewable Resource Trust Fund dollars, information on cash flow, program activities and results, and projects and funding awards. The Appendix contains detailed project descriptions, statistics, and financial data.
