One-Day Symposium on Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions from

Representatives of Auto Industry, Government, Universities and
Environmental Groups Meet to Discuss the Future of Cars in
California under AB32

SACRAMENTO-The California Air Resources Board and the UC Davis
Institute of Transportation Studies is holding a one-day
symposium to discuss approaches to reducing greenhouse gases
from vehicles.

Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Passenger Vehicles
"What's Next?"
Monday April 21
8:30 am - 5:00 pm
Byron Sher Auditorium
California EPA Headquarters Building
1001 I Street
Sacramento CA 95814

More information and full agenda is at the Highlights section of
the ARB homepage: www.arb.ca.gov . The webcast will be available
at: www.calepa.ca.gov/broadcast/?BDO=1 .

Background: Passenger vehicles account for 30% of California's
total greenhouse gas emissions. For the state to achieve the
reductions required under AB32, it is crucial that these
emissions be addressed. Despite efforts to reduce greenhouse
gases with regulations adopted under AB1493 (the Pavley
regulations) by 2016, further reductions under 'Pavley II' by
2020, and the introduction of fuels with lower carbon intensity
there will still be a significant shortfall. This symposium
brings together a broad array of experts to discuss next steps
to address this shortfall, and how to ensure that Californians
can buy and drive vehicles with significantly lower greenhouse
gas emissions.

Agenda: Morning panels address vehicle technology and how
current greenhouse gas regulations can be strengthened using
emerging technologies. Afternoon panels discuss the
effectiveness of feebates in reducing GHG emissions, and other
market mechanisms that can be used including pricing policies
and vehicle fees proportional to a vehicle's greenhouse gas
emissions. The audience will be offered the opportunity to make
additional presentations and/or comments.
