BAC Comments on CEC’s Proposed Biofuels Funding Plan

The California Energy Commission administers the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program, which provides approximately $100 million in funding per year.  At a recent staff workshop, the CEC presented its staff proposal for the biofuels portion of that funding.  The staff proposal stated that its goals are are to reduce carbon intensity, increase waste based fuels and fund technology transformation.  The proposed funding allocations, however, prioritize very high volume production facilities, which excludes most waste based fuels that are more distributed in nature.  See BAC Comments on Biofuels Solicitation Concepts.
