California Energy Commission Public Interest Energy Research Program (PIER)

Administered by the California Energy Commission, the Public Interest Energy Research Program (PIER) was created to advance science and technology in the fields of energy efficiency, renewable energy, advanced electricity technologies, energy-related environmental protection, transmission and distribution, and transportation technologies. The PIER Program awards up to $62 million annually to support new energy services and products that create statewide environmental and economic benefits. Priority research areas defined in PIER’s five-year Climate Change Research Plan are: monitoring, analysis, and modeling of climate; analysis of options to reduce greenhouse gas emissions; assessment of physical impacts and of adaptation strategies; and analysis of the economic consequences of both climate change impacts and the efforts designed to reduce emissions.

Climate Change: Energy Infrastructure Risks and Adaptation Efforts (GAO-14-74)

March 4, 2014

The U. S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) has examined the vulnerability of the nation's energy infrastructure to climate change impacts. This report describes their findings including: (1) what is known about potential impacts of climate change on U. S. energy infrastructure; (2) measures that can reduce climate-related risks and adapt energy infrastructure to climate change; and (3) the role of the federal government in adapting energy infrastructure and adaptation steps selected federal entities have taken.

California 2012 Bioenergy Action Plan

August 23, 2012

California’s 2012 Bioenergy Action Plan outlines strategies, goals, objectives, and actions that state agencies will take to increase bioenergy development in California. The plan builds upon the state’s 2006 and 2011 Bioenergy Action Plans. These plans were developed with input from the Bioenergy Interagency Working Group, the California Biomass Collaborative and stakeholders and other public comments. An in-depth status report on bioenergy development and analysis of the issues are contained within the 2011 Bioenergy Action Plan, which was adopted by the California Energy Commission in March 2011.

Effectively Addressing Climate Change Through Adaptation for the Energy Gulf Coast

October 2010

This presentation provides a synthesis of the analysis conducted on the economic impacts of climate change on the Gulf Coast. The research provides current and projected costs of storm surges, sea level rise, and wind related damage over the next 20 years. The risks, across numerous asset types, such as on-shore and off-shore oil and gas structures, and geographic areas are evaluated. Potential costs and benefits of numerous possible adaptation measures are presented. .

California Climate Action Team Biennial Report - 2009 CAT Report

April 2010

In June 2005, Executive Order S-05-05 was signed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger which mandated the preparation of biennial science assessment reports on climate change impacts and adaptation options for California. The first Climate Action Team (CAT) Assessment Report was produced in March 2006. This 2009 assessment expands on the policy-oriented 2006 assessment, and provides new information and scientific findings including: 1) the development of new climate and sea-level projections using new information and tools that have become available in the last two years; and 2) an evaluation of climate change within the context of broader social changes, such as land-use changes and demographic shifts.

America's Climate Choices: Limiting the Magnitude of Climate Change

2010

Limiting the Magnitude of Climate Change focuses on climate change mitigation goals, opportunities, and policies, and recommends the U.S. climate policy goal be stated in terms of a budget for cumulative greenhouse gas emissions over the period 2012 to 2050. The report suggests the revenues created by tax receipts or allowance sales from carbon pricing could be used to fund climate adaptation efforts.
