California has long been a leader in efforts to improve building energy efficiency, both at the time of construction and upon a major remodel or equipment replacement. The 2019 California Energy Efficiency Action Plan (2019 Action Plan) covers issues, opportunities, and savings estimates pertaining to energy efficiency in California’s buildings, industrial, and agricultural sectors. The plan is organized by the three state goals driving energy efficiency activity: doubling energy efficiency savings by 2030, removing and reducing barriers to energy efficiency in low-income and disadvantaged communities, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the building sector.
- Scenario 1 - Electricity and Natural Gas
- Scenario 1 - Combined Energy
- Scenario 1- Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reductions
Individual program workbooks are available in the 2019 Integrated Energy and Policy Report docket on energy efficiency and building decarbonization labeled A1 – A17, N18 – 22. And U1 – U10.
- California Utility Allowance Calculator (CUAC)
The CUAC is a tool designed to calculate project-specific utility allowances for low income housing projects.
