The 4th Annual Clean, Low-Carbon Fuels Summit brings together industry executives, policymakers, and thought leaders to discuss the landscape of advanced fuel technologies, the latest policy developments in California and beyond, and new policy initiatives that are needed. Covering the breadth of liquid and gas fuels as well as transportation electrification, the Summit will explore how the clean, low-carbon fuel sector is benefiting California, and what contributions the sector can make if more of the right policies are put into place.
With policies such as AB-32, Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS), Alternative and Renewable Fuels and Vehicle Technology Program (ARFVTP), and ambitious goals to reduce petroleum while increasing electrification, California has chosen to lead the world in transitioning to a cleaner, lower-carbon transportation fuel pool.
In return, the sector is doing great things for California, creating jobs and clearing the air in the San Joaquin Valley, South Coast, and Silicon Valley. In these regions, fuel producers are bringing new facilities on line, manufacturers are taking engines to market which are making greater use of clean and low-carbon fuels, and fleets of all varieties are adopting advanced new fuel systems.
However, there is much more to do. Although the sector is on the verge of making important advances, investors report that regulatory barriers, mixed policy signals, and a playing field still tilted heavily in favor of oil are standing in the way a next wave of investment and job creation.
The half-day, invitation-only summit will explore these themes, and show how the clean, low-carbon fuel sector is benefiting California, and what contributions the sector can make if more of the right policies are put into place. Technologies covered include liquid and gas fuels as well as transportation electrification.
CALSTART is hosting this event with Environmental Entrepreneurs, the California Electric Transportation Coalition, and the California Natural Gas Vehicle Association.
