About the Program

With California on track to achieve its climate change goals by the end of the decade, Governor Brown has set his sights even higher. What will it take to ensure that half of the state’s energy comes from renewable sources and to significantly increase efficiency for cars and buildings—all by 2030? A panel of state and local experts will discuss the challenges and the potential impact of these policies on life in California.
