As part of its October 22, 2008 Business Meeting, the California Energy Commission will consider adoption of the 2008 Annual Report and Appendix. The 2008 Annual Report responds to a legislative directive to report annually on the results of the Renewable Energy Program's activities and status of funding. The comprehensive 2008 Annual Report covers the period of July 1, 2007 through June 30, 2008.

With the Renewable Energy Program's efforts now encompassing the state's Renewables Portfolio Standard (RPS) goals and the importance of decreasing greenhouse gas emissions, the report's Executive Summary provides information on the program's progress in meeting RPS goals. In addition, key renewable energy legislation and policies are highlighted and provide a framework for discussion of the Renewable Energy Program's activities and accomplishments.

Specifically, the 2008 Annual Report includes information on the fiscal and functional aspects of the Renewable Energy Program: allocation of Renewable Resource Trust Fund dollars, information on cash flow, program activities and results, and projects and funding awards. The Appendix contains detailed project descriptions, statistics, and financial data.
