Arne Olson, E3 senior partner, was recently quoted in UtilityDive about California’s goal to reach 100 percent clean energy by 2045:

The article also discusses E3’s June 2018 study for the California Energy Commission, “Deep Decarbonization in a High Renewables Future,” which evaluates 10 scenarios for achieving California’s long-term greenhouse gas reduction goals and offers preliminary analysis of what a zero-emissions economy might entail.

SB 100, signed into law in September 2018, requires 60 percent renewable electricity by 2030 and 100 percent emissions-free electricity by 2045.
