The Great Plains Institute invites you to participate in a discussion about clean fuels policies and their potential impacts on equity, air quality, decarbonization, and sustainability. This discussion will take place on February 14, 2022, 12:30-2:30 pm CT.
A Midwestern clean fuels policy is a proposed market-based policy that would reward fuels that offer greenhouse gas reductions in the transportation sector. It would reduce the use of higher-carbon fuels and support commercial deployment of lower-carbon fuels, including biofuels, natural gas, and electricity for electric vehicles. A Midwestern clean fuels policy could be a game-changer when it comes to reducing emissions from the transportation sector, the region’s largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. It could also result in air quality and sustainability improvements and promote investment in equitable transportation electrification.
Similar policies are major drivers for transportation electrification and clean fuel deployment in markets like California (Low Carbon Fuel Standard) and Oregon (Clean Fuel Standard). This web meeting will be an opportunity to hear from nongovernmental organizations based in the Midwest and across the country with direct experience working to advance clean fuels policies. Attendees will hear about opportunities to support a Midwestern approach to clean fuels policies, ask questions, and engage in conversation with other advocates.
