Clean Cities Round-Table Workshop: Fueling Conversation Today to Refuel California

Tuesday August 12, 2014- San Diego Clean Cities Coalition (SDRCCC) held a workshop, “Low Carbon Fuels Round-Table Discussion” downtown at the World Resource Simulation Center (SimCenter). This month’s interactive workshop combined presentations and small group discussions to go in-depth on barriers and solutions to increase deployment of low carbon fuels. The fuel types and vehicle technologies of focus were gaseous fuel, biofuels and electric & hybrids.


The workshop allowed attendees to ask questions and have personal discussions with regional fuel experts while gaining insight on regional low carbon fuel policies and implementation from planning professionals.

Attendees received a unique sensory experience due to the SimCenter’s setup of 12 large overhead screens surrounding the room. The screens projected data and graphs to support and augment the round-table discussions.

The workshop was well received with over 25 attendees ranging from city planners, fuel providers, private companies as well as national and international students.



Below are the workshop presentations as well as resources that were utilized in the round-table discussions.
