Beginning in mid-November and continuing through late January, the California Energy Commission will host a series of webinars showcasing results of energy-related research contributing to California’s Fourth Climate Change Assessment. These research results are particularly timely given such efforts as the California Public Utility Commission’s order instituting rulemaking (OIR) on adaptation; the need (as per Executive Order B-55-18) to chart a resilient path to economy-wide, net zero emissions by 2045; and ongoing and planned state-supported efforts to lay the scientific foundation for understanding how climate change will affect wildfire-related risks in California.
This webinar series is part of a series of events to release results of California’s Fourth Climate Change Assessment. For the full list of events, please see: http://www.climateassessment.ca.gov/events/
