On November 4th, the Western Propane Gas Association (WPGA) will virtually host the Path to Renewable Propane conference, the first event of its kind in the U.S. that is uniquely focused on propane derived from sustainable sources. The event is aptly named, as WPGA sets forth on an ambitious path to achieve 100% renewable propane in California by 2030. This conference will tackle some of the challenges of how to achieve this sustainability target from multiple angles, including consumers, producers, retailers, and policymakers. The event will explore the opportunities for how various stakeholders can work together to develop the market for this burgeoning fuel.
For starters, attendees will learn what renewable propane is, the theoretical and practical ways it can be produced, and the carbon reduction impacts of the innovative fuel. The conference features speakers who have dedicated expertise with renewable propane and will share how some regions of the globe have made a large commercial production investment to benefit both the planet and the corporate bottom line. Attendees will also learn the current production volumes of renewable propane today and the future production outlook. A panel of retailers will share why they elected to sell renewable propane and their experience thus far from navigating the credit systems to the unexpected speedbumps others can avoid when marketing the fuel. The event will also feature one of the first school districts in the country to use the renewable fuel in their school bus fleet.
