Max Baumhefner, Attorney, Clean Vehicles & Fuels, San Francisco I’ve previously written on the overlapping consumer interest in clean vehicles and clean energy, describing five pathways to make the connection between the two.  Today, Ford unveiled a sixth, covering the roof of a plug-in hybrid C-Max Energi entirely in solar cells and parking it below a solar concentrating canopy.  With the car slowly moving itself over the course of the day to follow the sun, it… [read post]

    Franchise Picture of John Ruskin   “It’s unwise to pay too much but it’s unwise to pay too little. When you pay too much you lose a little money, that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing you bought it to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. It can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it’s well to add something for the risk you… [read post]

Here's a California law update from my partner Wayne Rosenbaum in San Diego: The California legislature continues to emphasize the importance of renewable energy for the State’s environment and economy. Of the renewable energy bills passed by the legislature and signed by the Governor this year, three of them focused on biogas. Some of the aspects of these bills actively encourage the increased use of biogas for electricity generation by calling on the California Public Utilities Commission… [read post]

Roland Hwang, Transportation Program Director, San Francisco With climate changed-fueled wildfires raging in the West, the cost of unabated climate change is becoming increasingly clear. To avoid even worse outcomes, we need to move to clean energy, not just California but across the rest of the US. That's why another important, hopeful trend caught my eye, the rise of electric cars in the South. That's right, 3 out of the top 15 markets for the best-selling pure electric car,… [read post]

The California Public Utilities Commission has commenced a new rulemaking to implement Assembly Bill (AB) 1900, on the use of common carrier gas pipelines for biomethane. In the rulemaking, the CPUC will develop standards and requirements for biomethane injected into pipelines, as well as pipeline access rules to ensure non-discriminatory open access to the system. Under current tariffs, most gas utilities specifically decline to accept or transport gas from landfills. Under AB 1900,… [read post]

Roland Hwang, Transportation Program Director, San Francisco By signing AB8 (Perea) and SB359 (Corbett), Governor Brown has a critical opportunity to make electric cars affordable for all, cut air pollution, and boost the economy.  These bills will extend California’s existing, highly successful rebate program for clean cars and trucks. Accelerating the transition from oil to electricity benefits all Californians through cleaner air, lower fuel bills and more jobs. Record… [read post]

Peter Lehner, Executive Director, New York City When the first hybrid cars hit the streets, people would point and stare, even stop owners on the street to ask questions. Was it a fad? A novelty? A toy for green enthusiasts?  Time has proven otherwise. In the first quarter of last year, the hybrid Toyota Prius was the third best-selling family car in the world. When the latest generation of plug-in electric cars hit the mass market three years ago, they evoked the same mix of… [read post]

Roland Hwang, Transportation Program Director, San Francisco A new study from North Carolina State purportedly shows that electric vehicles won’t reduce pollution in the long term.  A closer look at detailed results reveals that the study actually shows the opposite: that higher electric vehicle adoption can significantly reduce carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide emissions. That’s right--despite the confusing spin--the North Carolina state study… [read post]

Kit Kennedy, Counsel, Air and Energy Program, New York As the one-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy approaches, it’s a good time to reflect on how far we’ve come on climate resilience and curbing global warming emissions.  New Yorkers have risen to the challenge of rebuilding damaged homes, communities and infrastructure. But there’s much more to be done. We need to end our addiction to fossil fuels and curb global warming emissions so that we reduce the… [read post]
