Ordinances slated for review include two options for builders of new construction to reduce natural gas consumption within their developments. By either building an all-electric structure at the minimum efficiency required by the state's energy code or designing a mixed-fuel building using natural gas and electricity at a higher efficiency level, developers can meet the proposed reach code for electrification, according to a staff report.
For single-family and duplex projects, builders can either construct all-electric buildings or design a mixed-fuel building 15 pct above the state code's energy efficiency requirement, which officials estimate could save builders $5,300 in construction costs as compared to a mixed-fuel home. An all-electric design for homes is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40 to 50 pct in most cases as compared to a mixed-fuel design, according to the report.
The proposed ordinance for office buildings would require builders to design an all-electric building or a mixed-fuel development 10 pct above the state code's energy efficiency requirement, which could involve using windows less prone to heat, natural sunlight and occupancy sensors. An all-electric office building designed to meet the 2019 state code is estimated to cost $57,300 less to construct compared to a comparable mixed-fuel building, according to the city council's report.
If adopted by the San Mateo city council and the California Energy Commission, the new codes will come into force Jan. 1, 2020. (Source: City of San Mateo, Daily Journal, July, 2019)

The capital development and construction work related to converting the existing capacity to wind, solar and other clean and renewable sources will fall under the regulatory purview of the act which will make it illegal for hydroelectric power to receive subsidies because wind and energy will not be able to compete if long-term savings and reliability are taken into account..

The Mercom survey notes that the share of renewable energy is progressively increasing in the Indian electricity mix and that the additional investments in renewable projects up to 2022 (excluding transmission) will be about $80 billion at today's prices and an investment of around $250 billion will be required for the period 2023-2030. ON an annualized basis, a $30 billion investment in renewable energy is expected over the next decade.
According to the survey, the cumulative renewable power installed capacity (excluding hydro of above 25 MW) has more than doubled from 35 GW on March 31, 2014, to 78 GW on March 31, 2019. The target is to achieve an installed capacity of renewable-based power of 175 GW by the year 2022. The share of renewables (excluding hydro above 25 MW) in the total generation was around 10 pct in 2018-19 compared to about 6 pct in FY 2014-15, the survey notes.

Illinois has seen rapid growth in wind and solar energy in recent years, driven in part by policy changes from the 2016 Future Energy Jobs Act. This policy supported new utility-scale wind and solar developments; enabled homeowners, businesses and public entities to lower their energy bills through on-site solar; and generated thousands of new jobs, according to Path to 100. But, IPA contends, without legislative change, renewable energy development will contract in 2020 and dry up almost completely between 2021 and 2025 due to funding constraints written into current law.
