Results of a major RAND study to identify and analyze energy policy issues facing California, with emphasis on developing a coordinated state policy response. The study assembles information bearing on these issues, defines key alternatives for the state, and discusses the implications of these alternatives for state energy policy. Following an overview of past and future sources and uses of energy in California 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 examined in the transportation, residential, commercial, and industrial sectors. Finally, the implications of three different scenarios of California's energy future are discussed, each with a different set of policy actions.
