California is on pace to meet the goal of securing 33 percent of the state’s electricity from renewable sources like solar and wind by 2020.  What energy goals should policy makers begin considering now to help sustain the momentum?  How can policy makers ensure that continued renewable deployment helps the state achieve its overarching greenhouse gas reduction goals?  This event will discuss these issues and offer ideas to address the challenges.  UC Berkeley and UCLA Schools of Law will also release a joint report at the event on this topic, entitled “Renewable Energy Beyond 2020.”
