|Policy Summary||The California Air Resources Board, in coordination with the Climate Action Team, developed the Scoping Plan outlining the state's strategy to achieve Assembly Bill 32, or the Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006. AB32 calls for a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by 2020.|
Measure E-2 of the report recommends installing an additional 4,000 MW of CHP capacity by 2020. To increase the deployment of CHP, the plan outlines a multi-pronged approach including measures such as utility-provided incentive payments, the creation of a CHP portfolio standard, transmission and distribution support payments, or the use of feed-in tariffs.
