The U.S. Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project (USDDPP) investigates the concrete requirements of a low-carbon transition in the United States – technology pathways, changes in physical infrastructure, and what policies are actually needed to drive an energy system transformation.
The USDDPP is a member of the Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project (DDPP), a collaboration of research teams from sixteen high-emitting countries, who are developing national decarbonization strategies to limit global warming to 2°C or less. The DDPP emphasizes transparent analysis and practical problem-solving.
In this context, the USDDPP team developed a roadmap showing how California can achieve an 80% emissions reduction by 2050. In 2014, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) asked LBNL’s scientists to quantify the potential scope and scale of technology options for GHG emissions reductions in its energy sector. The research team quantified that their research was making tremendous progress within the three corridors and the whole suite of energy-saving technologies: Demand management: 9.8 million metric tonnes (MMT) to 40.5 MMT CO2e annually among the three corridors; building efficiency: 6.2 MMT to 22 MMT CO2e; electricity generation: 11.4 MMT to 35.7M, for example.
