An abridgment of results of a study on energy policy issues facing California, reported in full in Energy Alternatives for California: Paths to the Future, R-1793. The study assembles information on energy resources, defines key alternatives for the state, and discusses the implications of these alternatives for state energy policy. Following an overview of sources and uses of energy in California presently and projected to the year 2000, the study 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. Conservation measures are outlined for the transportation, residential, commercial, and industrial sectors.
