USA, California: Geothermal Energy Can Help Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions in the Golden State

California air regulator rolls out draft plan to achieve 2030 climate goals (Utility Dive)

The California Air Resources Board (ARB) last week issued an initial draft plan to meet the state's ambitious 2030 climate goals, leaning on existing standards and requirements to achieve emissions reductions, Carbon Pulse reports.
California plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% below 1990 levels by 2030, which the state says is the "most ambitious target in North America."

California ARB's plan includes the state's efforts to put more fuel-efficient cars and zero emission vehicles on the road, utilize low-carbon fuels and renewable energy, cap-and-trade carbon regulations, waste diversion from landfills, water conservation and improvements to energy efficiency in homes and businesses.
