Environment California Research & Policy Center
Environment California Research & Policy Center prepared this series of factsheets to provide information about local energy technologies that are well-suited to help California reduce its dependence on fossil fuels and achieve a clean energy future. Each factsheet describes technologies that use energy from the sun, the wind, the earth, or plant matter to generate heat or electricity on or near the buildings and factories where we live and work. The factsheets also provide examples of how these technologies are already contributing to California’s clean energy goals. Finally, the factsheets provide recommendations for accelerating future clean energy progress.
