California's Energy Future

16th Annual Travers Conference in Ethics & Accountability

The state of California has embraced an ambitious goal of meeting its future energy needs while increasing its use of renewable energy.  But a recent Little Hoover Commission report finds that the state has failed to develop a comprehensive energy strategy that confronts the difficult tradeoffs it faces.  The 16th Annual Travers Conference on Ethics & Accountability in Government will investigate the tradeoffs represented by reliance on different energy sources, including oil, natural gas, nuclear energy, biofuels, and wind and solar power. 

This is a public conference and no registration is required.
