California has ambitious goals to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global climate change and to generate more of its energy from renewable sources like the sun and wind.  To meet them, the state will need certain businesses -- such as real estate, renewable energy, energy storage, and energy efficiency companies -- to innovate and grow.  This talk will highlight the key federal, state, and local policies needed to encourage this progress and help California continue to be a leader in growing a sustainable economy.
