California Senator Ben Allen and NRDC Executive Director Peter Lehner
California Senator Ben Allen and Natural Resources Defense Council executive director Peter Lehner have been named as the keynote speakers for next month’s inaugural Rethink Methane Symposium in Sacramento.
The Rethink Methane Symposium takes place June 9-10. Attendees will learn how renewable methane from biological and synthetic sources can help California strengthen its economy and pave a sustainable energy future – and help integrate solar power and wind power into the conventional energy infrastructure (F&F, April 15).
Ben Allen is a freshman senator who represents the much of west Los Angeles. “Since getting to Sacramento he has hit the ground running with important environmental and energy legislation including groundbreaking Senate Bill 687, which establishes a renewable gas standard for the state of California’s gas utilities,” says Rethink Methane organizer (and Fleets & Fuels publisher) Gladstein, Neandross & Associates.

Peter Lehner, GNA says, has been executive director at NRDC since 2006. “Arguably the nation’s most influential and effective environmental advocacy organization, NRDC is a national leader in the effort to reduce exposure to smog causing chemicals, toxic air contaminants and climate-changing gases.”
The room block for the Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel closes Friday, May 15.
Attendance at June’s Rethink Methane Symposium is free for representatives of government and non-profit organizations. The conference fee is just $250 for industry representatives.
