2030 California renewable natural gas outlook: Resource assessment, market opportunities, and environmental performance
Estimates the possible production volume of cost-viable RNG and considers the impact of changes to California methane regulations on its LCFS credit value
Key issues in LCA methodology for marine fuels
Highlights the impact of key considerations and methodological decisions when doing a life-cycle analysis (LCA) of transport fuels and demonstrates how these can impact the greenhouse gas emissions attributable to different alternative fuels.
A comparison of the life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions of European heavy-duty vehicles and fuels
Evaluates the lifetime emissions, including from manufacturing and use, of different truck and bus powertrains
A life-cycle comparison of the greenhouse gas emissions from combustion, electric, and hydrogen trucks and buses in Europe
Summarizes findings of study on the lifecycle emissions of heavy-duty vehicles
A roadmap for decarbonizing California in-state aviation emissions
Assesses how policies could increase the contribution of sustainable aviation fuel and zero-emission planes to the state’s decarbonization efforts
Comparing the future demand for, supply of, and life-cycle emissions from bio, synthetic, and fossil LNG marine fuels in the European Union
Estimates demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel for ships trading with the European Union in 2030 and compares the life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions of using fossil or renewable LNG to consider renewable LNG’s potential to support climate goals.
Setting a lipids fuel cap under the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard
A policy safeguard is urgently needed to limit the impact of LCFS on food prices, trade imbalances, and deforestation.
Leveraging EU policies and climate ambition to close the cost gap between conventional and sustainable aviation fuels
Argues that the EU’s new “Fit for 55” proposals could be leveraged to steer more revenue toward development of sustainable aviation fuels, and to discourage use of fossil jet fuel.
Policy recommendations for a national low-carbon fuel standard
Recommendations ensure a national standard delivers deep GHG reductions and drives the use of second-generation fuels
Opportunities and risks for a national low-carbon fuel standard
Assesses the economic and environmental impacts of replacing the federal Renewable Fuels Standard with a national low-carbon fuel standard
