Public Policy Analysis

PEEC has contributed to policymaking in California and nationally by analyzing the impacts of proposed laws and regulations. Topics have included the feasibility of laws in multiple states to limit greenhouse gas emissions per mile for cars, along the lines of fuel efficiency standards deployed for decades. PEEC researchers have also evaluated the costs and effectiveness of competing market mechanisms to control GHG emissions, and compared the performance of new ways to connect households to the actual, dynamic price of electricity.
