ACT Expo 2016
Rethink Methane Next Month
“It’s time to change the way we think about methane,” says ACT Expo organizer Gladstein, Neandross & Associates. Accordingly, GNA will host the second annual Rethink Methane conference June 29-30 at the Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel in Sacramento, Calif.
“By pursuing renewable methane’s full potential, California lawmakers can harness a powerful tool that will help the state meet its goal of increasing renewable energy to 50% and reducing petroleum consumption by 50% by 2030,” says GNA president Cliff Gladstein.
Biomethane can serve as a practical storage medium for solar- or wind-based power-to-gas installations;
help create a near-zero-emission hydrogen energy infrastructure; and strengthen California’s economic future.
“The economic development potential of renewable methane feedstocks that have gone largely untapped – such as dairy manure, agriculture stubble, forestry biomass, and power-to-gas – coupled with the environmental benefits of reducing greenhouse gases from these sectors, bolsters the urgency of getting public policies in place to accelerate their development,” Gladstein said.
The Sacramento symposium, GNA says, “will educate and encourage policymakers to implement policies and incentives that accelerate the production, distribution and consumption of renewable methane, as well as develop a robust capacity to produce hydrogen and methane from surplus renewable power.”
