NATSO, Fuel Retail Groups Outline Principles for Advancing Alternative Fuels in the Market
Added on: January 28, 2021
NATSO and the fuel retailing community called on the Biden Administration to adopt a series of consumer-based, market-oriented proposals as it drafts climate and infrastructure policy to advance the adoption of alternative fuels in the marketplace. NATSO outlined six principles that should guide the Administration’s approach to lowering the carbon footprint of transportation fuel in a letter to the Secretary Designates for the Departments of Transportation and Energy as well as the Administrator Designate for the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Climate Advisor. The letter was also signed by the Society of Independent Gasoline Marketers of America (SIGMA) and the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS). The principles provide a roadmap that, if adopted, will align policy incentives to ensure the private sector is equipped to facilitate a faster, more widespread and cost-effective transition to alternative fuels.
