Santa Fe County Greenhouse Gas Emissions Inventory

In 2017, the Santa Fe County Board of Commissioners adopted a Resolution 2017-68 affirming its commitment to the Paris Agreement and signed onto “We Are Still In.” To further its goals, the County contracted Adelante Consulting to develop greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions inventories for calendar years 2005, 2017 and 2018, quantifying emissions from the County’s municipal operations only. The inventories include emissions from the following primary sources: stationary energy, transportation, solid waste, and water and wastewater management. Both Scope 1 and 2 emissions are reported.

Updated New Mexico Clean Fuel Standard Evaluation

This report presents a preliminary evaluation of the environmental and economic impacts of implementing a clean fuel standard (CFS) in New Mexico. A CFS is a market-based trading program under which the State specifies a schedule on which the carbon intensity (CI) of transportation fuels must be reduced, and the regulated entities must either adjust their operations to meet the rate of reduction, or buy credits from those whose reductions have exceeded the requirements.

Report: As Electric Vehicle Costs Drop, States’ Efforts to Ease Barriers Vary Dramatically

With transportation now the largest source of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, several states are taking comprehensive steps to help enable residents and businesses to use and charge electric vehicles, yet many others have done little to reduce barriers, according to a first-of-its-kind report released today by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy.
