Press Release: Low Carbon Fuel Standards Will Adversely Affect Oil Sands Crude Producers, Refiners, and Fuel Consum

| Sourced From PR-canada |

Purvin & Gertz, Inc. announces the release of its report: Low Carbon Fuel Standards (LCFS) Impacts on Oil Sands . LCFS programs are being implemented in California, Oregon and British Columbia. They are under consideration in many other states and provinces and are becoming regional in nature. LCFS programs differ by jurisdiction, but have in common mandated reductions in the carbon intensity of transportation fuels. By targeting petroleum-derived gasoline and diesel and promoting low carbon alternative energy forms such as electricity, hydrogen, natural gas and next generation biofuels, LCFS programs are intended to reduce overall Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions on a ‘well-to-wheels’ basis. Tom Wise, who directed the study, notes: “In effect, LCFS programs contribute to an ‘offoil’ strategy.”

Supporting alternative energy companies cuts carbon emissions

| Sourced From Examiner.com |

Supporting companies that generate alternative sources of electricity is a sound way of offsetting the amount of CO2 in our atmosphere. The energy generated in the US is distributed using a “grid” which distributes the electricity based on demand and availability. The more electricity that is supplied from alternative energy sources such as wind generation, methane digester’s, solar collectors, etc., the less electricity is needed from fossil-fueled plants using oil and natural gas.

Sunrise Solar to Sell Carbon Offsets

Sunrise Solar is all set to become a carbon offset provider with the launch of its offset program for individuals and businesses. A web-based application is being developed through which consumers will be able to calculate their CO2 emissions and then purchase carbon offsets to mitigate the impact of those emissions on the environment. If the beta version of the application runs successfully, the company will introduce the full-fledged application later in the year.

Sunrise Solar to Sell Carbon Offsets

The Chairman and CEO of the company, Eddie Austin said:

“Purchasing carbon offsets is a way for consumers to make a significant contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, both locally and globally..”

Sunrise Solar is a Texas based alternative energy firm and the revenues earned through its carbon offset initiative will be used to subsidize the costs of providing solar technology and equipment. The objective is to promote the use of alternative energy among those who wouldn’t have been able to afford it at regular prices.
