The University of California (UC) set a goal to emit net zero greenhouse gases from its buildings and vehicle fleet by 2025, with a plan to achieve 40% of its natural gas from renewable sources by then. Learn how UC is working with landfills around the country to make this happen.
Sam Schabacker, Renewable Energy Analyst, University of California
Sam leads biogas origination for UC. UC has both developed a landfill gas (LFG) processing plant and procured biogas via long-term offtake contracts as part of its ambitious goal to be carbon neutral by 2025. Sam will discuss both models and how biogas fits into UC’s comprehensive carbon neutrality strategy.
