A new report shows that California continues to be a global leader in the clean tech sector.

And one of the areas looked at in the Next 10 report was the effect of Assembly Bill 32.

"California's per capita green house gas emissions dropped nearly 10 percent in the last five years," Founder Noel Terry said. 

Terry says this demonstrates that California can reduce emissions while we continue to grow the economy and grow our jobs. And he says that is evident locally, as well.

"The Sacramento region was the fastest growing region between January 2011 and 2012 and the job base went up by 5 percent," Terry said. 

Terry says the report shows that we do need to look at more ways to store renewable energy.
