California’s goal is to reach 100% carbon neutrality by 2045 and SoCalGas will be instrumental in helping our state get there. We released The Role of Clean Fuels and Gas Infrastructure in Achieving California's Net-Zero Climate Goal – a study showing the essential role clean fuels like RNG and hydrogen can play in our energy future.
The study examines California’s options for moving to a net-zero energy system. Building on studies by State agencies like the California Energy Commission and the California Air Resources Board, the analysis presents a new level of economy-wide modelling.
The analysis examines four scenarios for achieving California’s climate goals and addresses the full complexity of reaching net-zero GHG emissions, economywide. It offers solutions for the hard-to-abate transportation and industrial sectors and supports state climate and energy policies, including resilient and reliable electrification.
Our study highlights how a clean fuels network that repurposes existing gas infrastructure to deliver clean fuels and manage carbon can help California reach its climate goals more affordably and with less risk than other pathways.
