With the commitment from Governor Brown, California is leading the way for the United States to de-carbonizing our economy by reducing the use of fossil fuels. To achieve this goal, the state is implementing multiple policies including cap-and-trade, energy efficiency, renewable energy, and electric vehicles, among others. The California Air Resources Board is charged with developing the plan to make our state’s goals a reality.
Please join AWWEE’s Bay Area Regional Leadership Team for an interactive discussion of this topic with Edie Chang, Deputy Executive Officer at the California Air Resources Board. Edie is responsible for development and implementation of California’s plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions including the AB 32 Scoping Plan, the cap-and-trade regulation, and the low carbon fuel standard. Ms. Chang also oversees strategies to reduce emissions from freight transport, the air toxics program, fuels regulations, and stationary source programs. In her 20 year career with the Air Resources Board, she has worked on a variety of projects including implementation of the zero-emission vehicle program, preparation of State Implementation Plans, and diesel incentive programs.
Edie received a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, and an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California, Irvine. She is a registered Mechanical Engineer in the State of California.
