Achieving the U.S. 2025 Emissions Mitigation Target: January 2016 Update

January 2016

Last spring, Climate Advisers released an initial assessment of the suite of recently finalized, proposed and planned regulations pushed forward by the Obama administration, and how close those efforts brought the U.S. to achieving the target range of emissions reductions by 2025 and through 2030. In this report, we update these projections based on recent policy developments and new reference case emissions data made available through the 2015 U.S. Energy Information Administration’s Annual Energy Outlook and the U.S.’s Second Biennial Report to the UNFCCC.
