Watch Past Renewable Gas 360 Webinars
Getting to Neutral: The Importance of Renewable Gas in Decarbonizing Society
Watch the recording of this 1-hour webinar, which took place June 17, to hear key findings from the recently published Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) report, “Getting to Neutral." Learn about strategies that can enable states to accelerate their efforts to fight climate change.  
National & State RNG Supply: Increasing Opportunities for Decarbonization
Watch the recording of this 75-minute webinar, which took place July 30, to hear key findings from two recent reports that forecast RNG production volumes by feedstock and detail RNG’s unique ability to meaningfully and cost effectively reduce GHG emissions across all sectors of the economy.
Exploring Renewable Hydrogen Production Pathways
Watch the recording of this 1-hour webinar, which took place September 9, to learn about some of the most promising renewable hydrogen production technologies and about how these pathways can be promoted and advanced through sensible public policy.

Future Renewable Gas 360 Webinar Topics May Include:
A Primer on Gasification

To provide participants an understanding of gasification technology, how it works, what is produced from gasification and its environmental benefits. To dispel myths and misunderstanding regarding gasification and explore how it can help western states mitigate wildfires, improve energy security and stability, help decarbonize energy supplies, and bring economic development to disproportionately impacted and disadvantaged communities, particularly in rural areas.
Hydrogen in Our Gas Supply
Hydrogen has long been touted as the energy source of the future. Questions have been raised whether future renewable hydrogen supplies can be transported and delivered through existing natural gas pipelines. This webinar will explore the capacity of the California gas transmission and distribution infrastructure to mix hydrogen in with the system's methane supply, report on efforts to integrate hydrogen into the gas supply, discuss what additional research may be needed, and what regulatory changes may be necessary to facilitate hydrogen injection. 
Power-to-Gas (P2G) - Status of U.S. Projects

Converting curtailed renewable electricity into hydrogen is a promising strategy to indefinitely store vast amounts of renewable energy. This webinar will explore the potential of P2G to help states achieve ambitious decarbonization goals, as well as showcase the leading P2G projects currently being developed around the nation.
How Renewable Gases Can Help Municipalities Reduce Their Carbon Footprint

CalRecycle is about to finalize its SB 1383 regulations that not only require municipalities to recycle their organic waste, but to also purchase the output. Renewable gases can be a key element of cities’ compliance strategy. Hear from municipal leaders who are spearheading the effort to harness their organic feedstocks in ways that will help them both comply with the regulation and receive added benefits
A Renewable Gas Portfolio Standard (RGS) – State Leadership

Many states have developed and implemented requirements that their natural gas utilities procure renewable natural gas to meet a specific percentage or volume of the gas they deliver to customers. These requirements have been put in place with the recognition that both residential and commercial customers prefer their natural gas appliances, therefore there is a need to decarbonize the gas supply in order to help meet state climate protection goals. In this webinar we will hear from policymakers who have led the effort to pass these renewable gas requirements, the issues that they dealt with during the policy making process, and the results of their efforts. 
Strategies to Mitigate Wildfires Using Forest Biomass as a Feedstock for Renewable Gas

One of the most pressing problems faced by western states in recent years has been ever increasing mega-fires. Not only are wildfires gaining in intensity, devastating ever greater acreage and taking more lives, but these fires pour so much carbon and soot into the atmosphere that they completely invalidate climate protection efforts. This webinar will explore how greater reliance on strategies that convert dead and dying forest biomass into renewable gases can serve as a major wildfire mitigation strategy for states.
