Webinar: Reference Case Assumptions for Policy Program Design

Thursday, May 23, 2019 11 am - 12 pm EST

The Transportation and Climate Initiative and the Georgetown Climate Center presented a webinar to discuss modeling methods that TCI states are considering to inform the design of a proposed regional cap and invest program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transportation. The purpose of this webinar was to review data inputs and assumptions that may be used for modeling a TCI “reference case,” which is the first step of the modeling process. Participants were invited to ask questions, learn more about this early stage of TCI analysis, and offer suggestions for TCI states to consider.

About the TCI Regional Low-Carbon Transportation Policy Development Process:

TCI is a collaboration of state environmental, energy, and transportation agencies that are working together to develop a regional policy for low-carbon transportation, following the December 18, 2018 statement by nine states and Washington D.C. committing to:

“…design a regional low-carbon transportation policy proposal that would cap and reduce carbon emissions from the combustion of transportation fuels through a cap-and-invest program or other pricing mechanism… [and]… to complete the policy development process within one year, after which each jurisdiction will decide whether to adopt and implement the policy.”
