Next 10, a San Francisco-based nonprofit that promotes the growth of the state's clean tech sector, said the state and federal governments' implementation of aggressive new fuel economy standards could boost growth in California's $1.9 trillion economy by up to 1.31 percent by the year 2025 while cutting the amount of greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 19 percent. "Efficiency fuels growth by saving consumers and businesses money and allowing them to spend it on things they really want," said the report's author, UC Berkeley professor David Roland-Holst.

According to the study, new jobs would come, in part, because of cleaner, more efficient vehicles that would result in savings, spurring on economic growth. Reducing fuel use could translate into spending that money on goods and services that don’t have to be imported, as well as in employing people in the state, for jobs that can’t be outsourced.

For more than three decades, California’s investments in energy efficiency – through groundbreaking building, appliance, and utility regulatory standards -- have reaped substantial economic returns for consumers in our state. These returns have in turn supported the creation of new jobs and businesses. Californians will see similar benefits when it comes to clean cars,” says Noel Perry, businessman and founder of Next 10.
