      Hi Curtis:

      Do you think we can get Peter Ward from CEC on the radio show some time in the future?

      As you probably know, CEC issued this draft final AB 118 Plan (Dec. 2008) which seems to be heavily focused on funding for biofuels which are defined as E-85 and biodiesel.

      This seems to be very political in the sense that the OEMs prefer liquid fuels since they have little investment to change in modifying their engines.

      Further, since CEC claims to have $120M of funding for each of the next 7 years, it is not clear to me what impact the lack of leadership in CA to pass a budget will have on this funding.

      As I have expressed many times in public testimony at CEC hearings is that I have not seen any attempt by CEC to get the OEMs to embrace CNG vehicles.

      When I talk to the OEMs they claim there is no market, but they do nothing to create the market. More specifically, if you watched the football playoff games on TV, you get guys like Howie Long promoting big gas guzzling Chevolet pickup trucks and the like.

      Considering that CEC has very ambitious goals of trying to reduce 20% of the GHG emissions by 2020, I'm curious by why there is not more of an effort to recommend or mandate legislation for alt. fuel vehicles.

      More importantly, I’m totally puzzled by why CNG is classified by CEC as a Low Carbon Fuel, while CEC classifies E85 and biodiesel as Ultra Low Carbon Fuel. As a chemical engineer, that makes no sense.

      The whole thing smacks of political BS to me.

      It's not my intent to put Peter on the hot seat as I consider him to be an ally, but just to get clarification to the extent we can.

      What do you think? Can this be achieved? Can we get Peter on the show? Do you want me to help?

      Tom

        Not a problem. Get me his phone # and a suggestion, or two, on anyone else you think may align with your point of view, or has opinions on the subject, and we can attempt to get to the bottom of this.

        Note my last post in the "Lounge" forum. It is a copy of the latest article on this subject in the NGVA newsletter, which you've probably already read.
