Rethink Methane: Removing the Fossil from the Fuel — February 21-22, 2017 — Sacramento, CA
Learn how renewable methane can help California:
- Achieve GHG emissions reduction objectives in SB 32, AB 197, and SB 1383
- Integrate sustainability goals for organic waste (ag, food, forestry, and wastewater)
- Accelerate development of practical, large-scale storage for renewable power
- Facilitate the creation of a low-carbon hydrogen supply for a fuel cell future
- Create economic development opportunities for disadvantaged regions
More than 250 policymakers, clean energy advocates, and industry stakeholders gathered for the second-annual Rethink Methane Symposium to examine how harnessing methane from organic and other renewable sources can help us mitigate fugitive methane emissions in California, while advancing the state’s air quality, climate protection, economic development, and energy diversification objectives.
Recognizing that collaboration is the key to progress, the Symposium brought together stakeholders from bioenergy, hydrogen, fuel cell, solar, wind, and natural gas industries to discuss barriers and identify solutions to harness the state’s vast renewable methane feedstocks—including dairy manure, agriculture stubble, municipal food and green waste, forestry biomass, and power-to-gas.
Presenters offered ideas on policies, programs and incentives that can be implemented to dramatically increase the production and consumption of this ultra-low-carbon fuel in California. READ MORE
