This one-day program will examine the opportunities, policy considerations and current developments for utilities to provide transportation fuels (electricity and natural gas). Previous WPUI programs have explored the grid impacts of electric cars, but this program will look at electricity and compressed natural gas as vehicle fuels from the larger energy landscape and policy perspective. Speakers will address questions such as: How do transportation fuels factor into the overall electricity and natural gas load projections used by utilities? What are the economic, environmental and policy considerations of deriving more transportation energy from publicly-regulated utilities instead of traditional gasoline and diesel suppliers? How are other regions preparing for utilities to supply more transportation fuel?
This program is eligible for 7 CLE/ 0.7 CEU credits.
