LADWP’s 2016 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) charts an ambitious course for the City to move away from reliance on fossil fuels. This historic plan recommends that LADWP surpass the already ambitious, state- mandated renewable portfolio standard of 50 percent renewables by 2030 with a target of 55 percent by 2030 and 65 percent by 2036. The IRP demonstrates how DWP will cut the share of natural gas in its generation portfolio almost in half over 20 years while eliminating coal. It also sets out a clear course for meeting the pLAn’s local solar and energy efficiency targets and exceeding targets for energy storage and transportation electrification, thereby assuring better integration of renewables and electric reliability. The high electrification target alone is expected to decrease overall GHG emissions from the transportation sector by 38 million metric tons over 20 years, equivalent to taking 430,000 cars o the road each year. Even without the new IRP, LADWP is poised to reduce its GHG emissions to 40 percent below 1990 levels later this year, putting Los Angeles 13 years ahead of the state-mandated 2030 goal.
