Acadia Center Submits Comments on the Appropriate Role of Hydrogen and Biofuels in Connecticut’s 2022 Comprehensive Energy Strategy
The Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) is currently in the process of developing the state’s 2022 Comprehensive Energy Strategy (CES). Technical Session 6, held on November 4th, was focused on alternative fuels (including biofuels and hydrogen). Following the Technical Session, DEEP requested written comments from stakeholders in response to a series of questions related to the role of alternative fuels in the 2022 CES. Acadia Center developed extensive comments covering a range of topics including the importance of using limited alternative fuels in the sectors of the economy that are most challenging to electrify and the importance of using accurate lifecycle greenhouse gas accounting for biofuels.
