There is no way to reach California’s ambitious climate goals—like getting to carbon-neutral—without carbon-negative fuels, including renewable natural gas and hydrogen. Let me expand on that. According to a recent Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory study, to reach the state’s carbon neutrality goal by 2045, we must reduce current levels by 125 million ton of CO2 per year, 80 percent of which can be accomplished by capturing methane from organic waste and putting it back into our pipeline system for customer use. Much of the infrastructure to support green gases already exists. ABC Member SoCalGas alone has 100,000 miles of resilient underground pipes that can be leveraged to deliver renewable natural gas (RNG). RNG solves a big methane emissions problem particularly for California’s dairy industry. More >>
