2020 was one of the worst wildfire seasons in history and now 2021 is shaping up to be even worse. Climate change has drastically altered forest health and requires bold new strategies for conservation and sustainable management. The production of renewable gases from forest biomass presents both a means of reducing fuel load and providing much needed resources for more sustainable forest management.
Please join us to learn:
- About the impact that wildfires have on climate and air quality, and opportunities to reduce emissions and restore healthy forests;
- The opportunity to convert forest waste to renewable gas, cutting climate super pollutants and creating carbon negative emissions;
- What resources the public and private sector are and can bring to develop and implement renewable gas-based solutions to the crisis in our forests;
- What policies lawmakers are pursuing to accelerate the development of sustainable and carbon neutral strategies to harness forest biomass for renewable gas production.
The Renewable Gas 360 webinar series will provide continuous curriculum on the critical role renewable gases—renewable hydrogen, methane, propane and syngas—can play in helping states reduce greenhouse gas emissions and achieve carbon neutrality.
The webinar series is hosted by SoCalGas, Propane Education & Research Council, and Pacific Gas & Electric. Sponsors include Air Products, Anaergia, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, Bloom Energy, BP, California Natural Gas Vehicle Partnership, CR&R, Fuel Cell Energy, GTI, Ingevity, Meridiam, Shell, South Coast Air Quality Management District, Southwest Gas, and SunGas Renewables.
The webinar series is co-produced by ACT News, GNA, and the Bioenergy Association of California. Endorsing organizations include Advanced Power & Energy Program at UC Irvine, American Biogas Council, California Fuel Cell Partnership, California Hydrogen Business Council, California Stationary Fuel Cell Collaborative, Climate Resolve, Community Partners, the Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas, Energy Vision, Fuel Cell & Hydrogen Energy Association, and Green Hydrogen Coalition.
