Develops a cost-benefit analysis to compare the impact of three separate policies to spur the additional production of ultralow-carbon fuels in California: a contract-for difference price guarantee, a per-gallon subsidy, and upfront capital grants. Uses a cashflow model to estimate the amount of new production of qualifying fuels in California from 2020 to 2030 and the cost per gallon for each policy.

Assesses the impact of market and political uncertainty on the real value of financial incentives from low-carbon fuel policies. Provides a detailed policy proposal and scenario analysis for a novel financing mechanism to support ultralow-carbon fuel production in California using a contract for difference (CfD) policy.

Proposes guidelines for categorizing biofuel feedstocks for the purpose of regulatory life-cycle analysis
