Registration Has Opened for February Conclave in Sacramento
Registration has opened for the third edition of Rethink Methane, a conference dedicated to the increased and creative use of natural gas, especially renewable natural gas (RNG), aka biomethane.
Rethink Methane 2017 takes place February 21-22 at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Sacramento. Removing the Fossil from the Fuel is the meeting theme.
“Renewable gas is poised to see tremendous growth, as legislation and policy created in 2016 has fundamentally altered the landscape for this crucial energy resource,” says Rethink Methane organizer (and Fleets & Fuels publisher) GNA – Gladstein, Neandross & Associates.
Heavy Hitters to Speak
“Gain insight from renowned clean energy leaders on the important role renewable methane can play in our energy future,” GNA says.

- integrate its sustainability goals for organic waste (agriculture, food, forestry, and wastewater);
- accelerate the development of practical, large-scale storage for renewable power such as wind and solar;
- facilitate the creation of a low-carbon hydrogen supply for a fuel cell future; and
- create economic development opportunities for disadvantaged regions of the state.
