RTC Responds to the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB’s) Draft 2022 Scoping Plan Update

Posted on Posted in Recent RTC Policy Activity
On June 23, the Renewable Thermal Collaborative (RTC) submitted comments to the California Air Resources Board’s (CARB’s) Draft 2022 Scoping Plan Update. The RTC applauds California’s continued commitment to emissions reductions across all sectors and agrees that electrification, biogas and biomethane, green hydrogen, and solar thermal technologies all offer opportunities to decarbonize the industrial and buildings sectors. In addition to these technologies, thermal storage can also achieve emissions reductions while taking advantage of low-cost renewable electricity generation, especially generation that might otherwise be curtailed.
