Low Carbon Fuel Standard Newsletter

It is important that all market participants in the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) – producers, importers, traders, and investors – have the right information to make smart Credit Market decisions. Stillwater Publications’ Low Carbon Fuel Standard Newsletter is a powerful tool for these Entities to use as they navigate the new standard.

This unique publication offers weekly, monthly, and quarterly looks at LCFS credit and deficit trends based on California Air Resources Board (CARB) data. Weekly reports include a summary of the week’s LCFS news, while monthly and quarterly reports also include Stillwater’s expert analysis of recent trends in the California program and LCFS-style regulations under development beyond California.

California C&T Newsletter

California’s Cap & Trade (C&T) adds cost to petroleum fuels and value to renewable fuels in California. All market participants – producers, importers, traders, and investors – need the right information to make smart market decisions. Stillwater’s C&T Newsletter offers insights into the allowance and offset demand and price trends that affect the downstream fuels market.

Each quarterly edition offers an auction summary tracking California Carbon Allowances (CCA) and California Carbon Offsets (CCO) transfer trends. Stillwater’s C&T Newsletter also reports on trends concerning Cap at the Rack (CAR) – the C&T assessment of greenhouse gases (GHGs) from the use of fossil transportation fuels. CAR is additive to the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) assessments which we track in Stillwater’s LCFS Newsletter.
