SUBMISSION DEADLINE March 19, 2021, 5:00 pm
The purpose of this RFP is to produce a long-term natural gas research strategy to help decarbonize California by 2045.

These recommendations will inform future research on technology development, deployment, and demonstration in the California Energy Commission’s (CEC) Natural Gas Research Program to help transition to a net-zero carbon natural gas system.
