Background and Purpose

This workshop is part of the 2007 IEPR proceeding to meet the requirements of AB 2021. AB 2021 requires the Energy Commission by November 1, 2007, and every third year afterwards, to develop a statewide estimate of all potentially achievable cost-effective electricity and natural gas efficiency savings and to establish targets for statewide annual energy efficiency savings and demand reduction for the next 10-year period. The Energy Commission is required to develop this estimate in consultation with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and local publicly owned electric utilities (POUs), in a public process that allows input from other stakeholders. The CPUC provides the potential savings and annual target information for the investor-owned utilities to the Energy Commission for use in this statewide estimate.

AB 2021 further requires each local POU, by June 1, 2007, and every third year afterwards, to identify all potentially achievable cost-effective electricity efficiency savings and to establish annual targets for energy efficiency savings and demand reduction for the next 10-year period. Within 60 days of adopting annual targets, each local POU shall report those targets and the basis for establishing those targets to the Energy Commission.

The Energy Commission is required by AB 2021 to include a summary of the information reported by each POU in the IEPR and to compare the annual targets with actual energy savings and demand reductions. If the Energy Commission determines that improvements can be made in either the individual level of POU effort to meet targets or to enable POUs to achieve aggregated statewide targets, AB 2021 instructs the Energy Commission to provide such recommendations.

This is the second of four workshops that provide a forum for discussion and comment by policy makers, regulators, parties, and stakeholders for the implementation of AB 2021. This workshop will focus on issues associated with realizing the potential savings through program design and implementation and measuring progress toward the targets. Materials for this workshop, including an agenda and list of key questions intended to facilitate discussion, will be available on the Energy Commission's website before the workshop. Two workshops are scheduled for August to discuss the Energy Commission's findings and proposed recommendations.
