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 California Energy Efficiency Action Plan is updated every three years. The next update will be on or before January 1, 2020.
The update will use information from the past plan, the Senate Bill 350 Doubling Energy Efficiency by 2030 report, the Low-Income Barriers Study, the Clean Energy in Low-Income Multifamily Buildings Action Plan, and ongoing building decarbonization research.
Until the update is adopted, the Energy Commission will gather information and feedback through the e-comment section and at events across the state.
