As an entrepreneur and investor, I see remarkable innovations that have and will continue to drive
economic opportunities moving away from the traditional fossil fuels of the past and embracing the clean, high-tech fuels of the future. Renewable sources of transportation fuel — from waste streams
to biomass to solar-generated electricity — are being developed and deployed all over the state. This
creates local jobs and boosts our state’s energy security while reducing pollution and greenhouse gas
If you’re building a clean-tech business, there’s no place in the U.S. you’d rather be than California. Take the Low Carbon Fuel Standard — one of a suite of California’s key clean energy and climate policies. The LCFS has been on the books since 2009, and the Air Resources Board will be considering re-adoption later this month. Like clean tech businesses across the state, we would like to see the LCFS not just re-authorized, but strengthened and extended beyond 2020.
E2′s Bob Keefe: “There’s a reason Apple is one of most successful companies in America: It does the right things at the right time. As Apple CEO Tim Cook put it so simply and succinctly, the time for talk on climate change is past and the time for action is now. Thank goodness for smart companies like Apple that know we need to cut carbon pollution and increase clean, renewable energy right now – for the good our environment and our economy.”
