Energy Master Plan & Global Warming Act Implementation

The 2019 Energy Master Plan outlines key strategies to reach the Administration’s goal of 100 percent clean energy by 2050, and the Global Warming Response Act 80x50 Report recommends pathways to reducing New Jersey’s greenhouse gas emissions 80% by 2050. Both documents are influential tools in New Jersey clean energy policy.
