More than 200 policymakers, clean energy advocates, and industry stakeholders gathered for the inaugural Rethink Methane Symposium. The Symposium was the first of its kind to bring together stakeholders in the natural gas, bioenergy, solar, wind, hydrogen, and fuel cell industries to demonstrate to policymakers the importance of implementing policies and incentives that: accelerate and maximize the production, distribution, and consumption of renewable methane produced from a variety of sources (organic waste, landfills, wastewater treatment plants, agricultural processes); and develop a robust capacity to produce hydrogen and methane from surplus renewable power (derived from wind and solar), known as “power-to-gas.”

The two-day program showcased important strides being made in both the public and private sector involving RNG, and included an off-site tour to a biomethane production facility, and an RNG buyers forum.

Featured Speakers Included:

  • Ben Allen, California Senator, 26th Senate District
  • Peter Lehner, executive director, Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC)
  • Fran Pavley, California Senator, 27th Senate District

The 2015 Symposium was supported by a number of leading energy, government, and industry associations, including the Southern California Gas Company, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, the South Coast Air Quality Management District, Redeem by Clean Energy, Applied LNG, CR—R Waste and Recycling, Xergi, Bioenergy Association of California, California Association of Sanitation Agencies, California Hydrogen Business Council, Climate Action Reserve, Climate Resolve, Coalition for Clean Air, Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas, Gas Technology Institute, and the Sacramento Clean Cities Coalition.
