California is looking to reduce the contributions of transportation to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through policies such as the Global Warming Solutions Act (AB32). In San Diego County, transportation accounts for more than 40% of total GHG emissions. Expanded use of alternative fuels is an important factor in reducing the carbon intensity of transportation.
The San Diego Clean Cities Coalition is hosting a Low Carbon Fuels Round-Table Discussion, Tuesday August 12, 2014 at the World Resource Simulation Center. This event is a great opportunity for environmental staff, fleet managers and fuel providers to discuss successes, raise concerns and work toward finding solutions to increase alternative fuel vehicles and infrastructure deployment. Round-table discussion topics will focus on biofuels, gaseous fuels, as well electric & hybrid vehicle technologies.
