San Francisco partner Matthew Hawk will be participating in an upcoming TeleBriefing covering California’s evolving energy efficiency policies. Call in from anywhere to hear a 90 minute expert discussion on January 29th at noon Pacific.

In 2015, California was a hotbed of development for energy efficiency law & policy. The California Clean Energy & Pollution Reduction Act of 2015 (SB 350) includes provisions to double energy efficiency end use by retail customers in the state by 2030. The legislature also passed AB 802, an energy efficiency benchmarking law that will make it easier for commercial and multifamily building owners to access accurate information on the whole building’s energy performance. Additionally in 2015, the California Energy Commission released an Energy Efficiency Action Plan for Existing Buildings, and its 2016 Building Energy Efficiency Standards.
