Balancing California's Energy

Flow diagram depicting California energy usage
November 2005

How much energy does the California economy use, how is the energy supplied, and what is it used for? For reasons related to the economy, the environment, and energy security, a lot of people are interested in these questions. The California Energy Commission recently funded scientists in Berkeley Lab's Environmental Energy Technologies Division to help find some answers. They did so by developing the California Energy Balances Database (CALEB), and issuing a report.
