CalSTEP’s California Action Plan for Transportation Energy Security
This Action Plan directs its attention to three distinct and complementary areas of action to supplement the 15.4 BGGE of petroleum consumed in 2020:
- Diversifying the state’s fuel supply;
- Improving vehicular efficiency; and
- Reducing the need to drive.
CalSTEP chose to focus its attention on these three areas of action because they are complementary and provide a comprehensive look at the way Californians travel by road. These areas follow California’s successful stationary energy strategy, allowing for the diversification of transportation energy sources and their efficient use while incorporating the more structurally related issue of reducing the need to drive. The Action Plan also recognizes that a major public education campaign is required to support the transition to a more energy efficient, secure, and prosperous society.
