The Climate Data and Analysis Working Group (C-DAWG) is a forum for technical discussion regarding issues at the nexus of climate change and California’s energy system. It informs planning and execution of applied research that supports development of climate projections, wildfire and hydrologic scenarios, quality-controlled historical weather data, and analyses that contribute to a resilient transition to a 100% clean energy system.
