California Hydrogen Business Council Comments on Clean Fuels Outlet Amendments
CHBC President voiced support for amendments, calls for voluntary mechanisms
Los Angeles, CA - 01/27/2012 - Yesterday, the California Hydrogen Business Council (CHBC) provided comments to the California Air Resources Board in support of the proposed 2012 Amendments to the Clean Fuels Outlet.
Mark Abramowitz, CHBC President, addressed the Board stating that "the CHBC is not in favor of mandates as the optimal public policy tool to achieve social goals. However, since a mandate on vehicle manufacturers to introduce Zero Emission Vehicles into the marketplace already exists, appropriate policies are necessary to assure the availability of adequate hydrogen infrastructure."
Mark added, "Therefore, the California Hydrogen Business Council supports the amendments to the CFO as proposed by staff. In addition, we support voluntary mechanisms that may be acceptable to CARB and industry that may achieve substantially similar results without actually implementing the CFO."
