In his 2015 Inaugural Address, California Governor Jerry Brown outlined three ambitious goals for California to achieve by 2030: Increase electricity derived from renewable sources to 50 percent; reduce petroleum consumption by 50 percent; double the efficiency of existing buildings and make heating fuels cleaner.

You're invited to a discussion where RealClearPolitics will examine what needs to be done to reduce petroleum consumption by 50 percent. What is possible and achievable by 2030? How can California balance the climate and clean air goals while still meeting its energy requirements, transportation demands and economic development needs? And what innovations will be the key to a successful plan.

When: Wednesday, June 10 from 2:30-4:30, followed by cocktail reception.

Where: Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel, Sacramento, California
