Public Workshop - Fuels and Infrastructure for a Carbon Neutral Economy

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) will host a public workshop to hear from experts and the public on the transition to low carbon fuels across all sectors and considerations for associated infrastructure to achieve Statewide carbon neutrality.  The workshop will consist of presentations from two panels focusing on fuels and infrastructure, each followed by a moderated panel discussion and questions from the public.

DATE:               July 15, 2020
TIME:                9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
LOCATION:       Virtual Workshop



In the last decade, California has made significant progress in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and has reduced GHG emissions below the 2020 target four years ahead of schedule while its economy continues to grow. California’s 2017 Climate Change Scoping Plan Update (Scoping Plan) charts a technologically feasible and cost-effective path to meet the State’s 2030 climate goal. Board Resolution 17-46 directs CARB staff to continue to evaluate and explore opportunities to achieve significant cuts in GHG emissions from all sectors and sources.  The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a report that indicates catastrophic climate change impacts as early as 2040 if we do not drastically reduce GHG emissions such that, by mid-century, more carbon dioxide is removed from the atmosphere than is emitted, also known as carbon neutrality. 

In 2019, CARB initiated a series of sector-specific public workshops to gather information and to facilitate dialogue on the potential role of each sector in achieving statewide carbon neutrality. These workshops bring together experts from academia, industry, government, and the nonprofit sector, and provide a public forum to explore approaches to making progress toward mid-century carbon neutrality across all major economic sectors.
