  • Managing the Transition

    Type: Fact Sheet

    Date: March 14, 2019

    To cut greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution, California agencies, municipalities and some utilities are rethinking the role of natural gas within the state’s energy system.  This includes new policies and approaches to use more electric options in homes and businesses, and to reduce the use of natural gas in power plants.  Succeeding in this endeavor will reduce reliance on the gas system, which could result in existing gas infrastructure becoming “stranded”. This carries important financial and political implications that, if not managed effectively, could complicate the state’s efforts to combat climate change.  This framework provides guidance on how policymakers can address the transition away from gas.
