The California Energy Commission will jointly conduct a workshop with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), to discuss building energy efficiency and decarbonization. A quorum of commissioners may attend, but no votes will be taken.


CEC staff will present the draft 2019 California Energy Efficiency Action Plan, including updated strategies to increase energy efficiency in existing buildings and updated targets for doubling energy efficiency savings by 2030. CEC staff also will update progress on Assembly Bill 3232 (Friedman, Chapter 373, Statutes of 2018), which requires an assessment, due by 2021, of the feasibility of achieving a 40 percent reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in buildings by 2030. CPUC staff will present the status of energy efficiency in the investor-owned utility (IOU) portfolio and the status of implementation of Senate Bill 1477 (Stern, Chapter 378, Statutes of 2018) including the Building Initiative for Low-Emissions Development (BUILD) and Technology and Equipment for Clean Heating (TECH) programs. Staff, utilities, local governments, researchers, environmental justice organizations, and others will present and discuss issues around energy efficiency, building decarbonization, and load flexibility.
