ENERGY ALTERNATIVES FOR CALIFORNIA: PATHS TO THE FUTURE

This report presents the results of a Rand Study aimed at identifying and analyzing energy policy issues facing the State of California. The report is divided into four parts. The first provides an overview of the California energy system. The second part of the report addresses nine energy supply issues: West-East oil movement, offshore oil and gas development, a northern California deepwater port, liquefied natural gas, gas transportation from the North Slope of Alaska, natural gas regulation, natural gas allocation policies, electricity generation, and the development of alternative energy sources. The third part analyzes issues of energy use and conservation. In the final part, the implications of three different scenarios of California's energy future, each of which incorporates a different set of policy actions, are described and discussed.
