    14. 14. <ul><li>There is no “Silver Bullet” – no single technical or fuel solution that exists today </li></ul>
    15. 15. The New “Strike Zone” in Transportation Air Quality Climate Change Energy Security Balances all three competing needs Integrated Solutions Needed

    17. 17. Beware the Pendulum Swing! <ul><li>It can become a hindrance to action </li></ul>
    18. 18. Beware the Pendulum Swing! <ul><li>Remember? </li></ul>Hydrogen and fuel cells are the only answer
    19. 19. Beware the Pendulum Swing! We’ll never be able to cheaply make hydrogen fuel or cars
    20. 20. Beware the Pendulum Swing! Hydrogen is one of the long term solutions but much more R&D needed
    21. 21. UK Royal Society: Warning on Biofuels <ul><li>Report calls for greater scrutiny for biofuels – “Sustainable biofuels: prospects and challenges,” The Royal Society </li></ul><ul><li>‘ Unless biofuel development is supported by appropriate policies and economic instruments then there is a risk that we may become locked into inefficient biofuel supply chains that potentially create harmful environmental and social impacts’ </li></ul><ul><li>New technologies need to be accelerated that can help address these issues, aided by policies that provide direct incentives to invest in the most efficient biofuels </li></ul>
    22. 22. Two Studies Raise Questions on Biofuels and Land Use <ul><li>Studies indicate previous “accounting errors” did not quantify ultimate greenhouse gas implications of biofuel crops </li></ul><ul><li>Princeton study, “Use of U.S. Croplands for Biofuels Increases Greenhouse Gases Through Emissions from Land-Use Change” and Nature Conservancy study, “Land Clearing and the Biofuel Carbon Debt” </li></ul><ul><li>Biofuels contributing to climate change by removing naturally occurring carbon sinks such as rain forests, with land conversion creating as much as 420 times C02 </li></ul><ul><li>“… most significant finding from of our research is that our current biofuels are not a viable strategy for reducing climate change. From a climate change perspective, current biofuels are worse than fossil fuels,” -- Joe Fargione, The Nature Conservancy </li></ul>Young palm oil seedling in a burned peat swamp forest landscape in Riau, Indonesia. © Marcel Silvius, Wetlands International Source:
    23. 23. Reaction to Biofuel Studies <ul><li>&quot;They're [the studies] based on naive assumptions…In the case of cereals, over the last 50 years there's been a doubling of demand, but there's not been an expansion of acreage… Expanding demand has generally not led to a corresponding increase in demand for land use. I would say it's a speculative response for a speculative paper.&quot; – Chris Somerville, director of the BP-funded Energy Biosciences Institute at the University of California, Berkeley </li></ul>Chris Sommerville, University of California, Berkeley Source:
    24. 24. Beware the Pendulum Swing! <ul><li>Now biofuels… </li></ul>Biofuels alone will solve climate change and energy dependence
    25. 25. Beware the Pendulum Swing! Biofuels are worse than conventional fuels for GHGs
    26. 26. Beware the Pendulum Swing! Today’s biofuels are an important start and transition path - not the complete solution nor final version of the product!
    27. 27. Where Are Biofuels Headed? <ul><li>Still very much an active debate </li></ul><ul><li>Today’s biofuels are stepping stones to next generation fuels and feedstocks – we believe you must start somewhere to make progress! </li></ul><ul><li>Biofuels in future that do not compete with food and wilderness for fertile land can avoid indirect GHG emissions (Alex Farrell, UC Berkeley Energy & Resources Group) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Wastes and residues, agriculture seasonal mix, wastelands crops – more R&D </li></ul></ul>
    28. 28. Fleets and Carbon “Footprint” <ul><li>Fleets need to look at entire operation: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>geographic differences, deeper dive in how vehicles used, air quality constraints, infrastructure support, regional funding, source of biofuels you use </li></ul></ul><ul><li>No more “one size fits all” answers </li></ul><ul><li>Best simple metric is petroleum use – how much do you use now, and how can you reduce it? </li></ul><ul><li>Tools: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Low carbon fuels – this is a moving target, but includes bio and renewable diesel, natural gas, DME, electricity, hydrogen </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>More efficient vehicles (many ways to achieve) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>More efficient operations and systems </li></ul></ul>
