Staff has recommended a preliminary GHG reduction target of 36% below 2005 by 2020 to be used in the analysis of potential actions. The targets are going before Oakland's City Council on July 7th. Later this fall, they will go back to council with the final target recommendations as well as recommendations for measuring, monitoring, reporting back, and potentially annual targets. Clean energy advocates should start talking up the need for these additional aspects now.
