Renewable Gas Portfolio/ Procurement Standards: State Leadership
Wednesday, January 27 | 10 a.m. PT
In partnership with:
Many states have or are in the process of developing requirements that their natural gas utilities procure renewable natural gas to meet a specific percentage or volume of renewable gas they deliver to customers. Hear from state policymakers who are leading the effort to pass these renewable gas requirements.

Attend this 90-minute Renewable Gas 360 webinar to learn about:

  • The challenges state lawmakers face in passing renewable gas portfolio requirements
  • The lessons that can be learned from states with existing RNG procurement targets
  • The benefits policymakers believe these policies and programs will bring to their communities

Webinar Speakers:
Senator Michael Dembrow

  Oregon State Senate District 23
Senator Chris Hansen

  Colorado State Senate District 31
Representative Mark McBride

  Oklahoma State House District 53
Sam Wade
Director of State Regulatory Affairs
Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas

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.
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
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.
