Proposed New Temporary Pathways

Pursuant to Section 95488.9(b)(4) of the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) regulation the Executive Officer may approve a new Temporary pathway for a fuel or feedstock-fuel combination not found in Table 8 of the LCFS regulation.  Public comments on proposed new Temporary fuel pathways (posted below) will be accepted for 45 days prior to certification.  If relevant comments received during this period require significant revisions of the originally published pathway, an updated pathway will be posted for additional public comment.  Upon certification, this new Temporary pathway will be available for LRT-CBTS reporting for the quarter in which it is certified.

Proposed Annual Updates to Lookup Table Pathways

Section 95488.9(b)(4) of the LCFS regulation directs the Executive Officer to update the CI annually for the following Lookup Table pathways using the methodology described in Section E of the Lookup Table Pathways Technical Support Documentation (August 13, 2018):

  • California average grid electricity used as a transportation fuel in California
  • Electricity supplied under the smart charging or smart electrolysis provision

Prior to certification, the updated pathway CI values will be posted for 45 days for public comment.  The Executive Officer will review and respond to relevant comments received during this period.  Once certified, the updated pathway CI values are expected to be available for quarterly fuel reporting for the first quarter (Q1) of 2019.

Tier 2 Pathway Applications (2019)

Pursuant to Section 95488.7(d)(5) of the LCFS regulation, Tier 2 fuel pathway application packages are posted to this web page for public comment after evaluation. Comments on each posted application package are accepted for ten (10) business days. Comments identifying potential factual or methodological errors in an application will be forwarded to the applicant.  Upon receiving valid comments, applicants must either correct the errors identified and submit a revised application packet reflecting those corrections, or submit a detailed written response to the Executive Officer explaining why no revisions are necessary.

Tier 2 pathways that do not receive any comments or those for which applicant has provided responses deemed sufficient by the Executive Officer are certified and posted to the General Certified Pathway List.
