arbcombo -- September 14, 2016: Public Workshop on the Transportation Sector to Inform Development of the 2030 Target Scoping Plan Update

Posted: 30 Aug 2016 16:15:00
California Energy Commission (CEC), California Office of Planning
and Research (OPR), California State Transportation Agency
(CalSTA), California Strategic Growth Council (SGC), and
California Air Resources Board (ARB) are jointly hosting a public
workshop on the Transportation sector on September 14, 2016. 

This public workshop will provide an overview on the process to
update the 2030 Target Scoping Plan, and will include CEC and ARB
staff presentations on efforts that contribute to greenhouse gas
(GHG) reductions in the vehicle and fuel technology sectors.

ARB staff will also present and introduce the newly developed
Biofuel Supply Module.  The Biofuel Supply Module is being
developed to aid in assessing potential low carbon fuel
availability in California as part of the Scoping Plan modeling
effort.  The Biofuel Supply Module will be posted on Wednesday,
September 7.

In addition, OPR, CalSTA, SGC, and ARB staff will present on
current initiatives that contribute to reductions in vehicle
miles travelled (VMT) and GHG emissions, and a land-use vision
and potential additional transportation and development
strategies to achieve greater VMT and GHG emissions reductions in
the future.  In advance of the workshop, Agencies will post a
White Paper containing initial land use protection, management,
and development ideas that will be considered and evaluated as
part of California’s 2030 climate change vision and strategy for
the Transportation sector.

The Biofuel Supply Module and Land-Use White Paper will be posted
by September 7th, and the Land-Use White Paper will be posted in
advance of the workshop here: 

The meeting is open to the public and full participation by all
parties is encouraged:  

DATE:	Wednesday, September 14, 2016 
TIME: 	9:00 am to 4:30 pm
PLACE:	California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA)
Byron Sher Auditorium 
1001 I Street
Sacramento, California 95814

This Transportation sector workshop is part of the public process
to update the Scoping Plan to reflect the Governor’s Executive
Order B-30-15, which established a mid-term GHG reduction target
for California of 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030.  All
state agencies with jurisdiction over sources of GHG emissions
were directed to implement measures to achieve reductions of GHG
emissions to meet the 2030 and 2050 targets.  ARB was directed to
update the AB 32 Scoping Plan to reflect the 2030 target, and
therefore, is moving forward with the update process.  The
mid-term target is critical to help frame the suite of policy
measures, regulations, planning efforts, and investments in clean
technologies and infrastructure needed to continue driving down

This workshop will support the process to update the AB 32
Scoping Plan to reflect California’s goal to reduce statewide
greenhouse gas emissions 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030, as
directed in Executive Order B-30-15.

In an effort to further the vision of AB 32, Governor Brown
identified key climate change strategy pillars in his January
2015 inaugural address. The pillars recognize that several major
areas of the California economy will need to reduce emissions to
meet the 2030 greenhouse gas emissions target.  One of the key
pillars identified by Governor Brown is to cutting petroleum use
in half by 2030.

A copy of the presentation and other workshop materials will be
available on the Scoping Plan webpage at:

Materials will be posted by September 12, 2016, at 1:00 pm.

A live webcast of the workshop will be available at: 

Remote participants will be able to submit e-mail questions
during the workshop to:  2030TargetScopingPlanUpdate@arb.ca.gov
