Contract for services to a California public or private entity to formulate a research plan to decarbonize the state. The contract awardee will develop a long-range strategy that will guide future technological development and implementation to assist in the transition to a net-zero carbon natural gas system. The research strategy will address all stages in the supply chain, and may include technologies that reduce emissions in the interim, prior to attainment of the ultimate net-zero goal.
The purpose of this program is to produce a long-term natural gas research strategy to help decarbonize California by 2045. The strategy is expected to produce prioritized research recommendations that include all stages in the supply chain (production, transmission, storage, and distribution for low carbon fuels) and all natural gas (NG) end use sectors, except for utility-scale power generation. These recommendations will inform future research on technology development, deployment, and demonstration in the California Energy Commission’s (CEC) Natural Gas Research Program to help transition to a net-zero carbon natural gas system. Please note that while net-zero carbon emissions is the end goal, technologies and strategies which reduce GHG emissions in the interim and help enable the transition to decarbonization (e.g., energy efficiency) are within the scope of the study.
The CEC’s Natural Gas Research Program invests in technologies and solutions that promote a more reliable, cost-effective, safe, and equitable energy service for natural gas sector ratepayers and supports California’s energy and environmental goals. New energy technologies and strategies will need to be developed to achieve these aggressive goals, and with limited research funding, investments will need to be strategically targeted.
