State Energy Plan Alternative Fuel Requirements

Archived: 06/01/2016

The Kentucky Department for Energy Development and Independence (Department) oversees the development and implementation of a comprehensive energy strategy. Specifically, the Department must develop and implement a strategy for the production of alternative transportation fuels and synthetic natural gas from fossil energy resources and biomass resources, including biodiesel and ethanol. A commonwealth energy plan, Intelligent Energy Choices for Kentucky's Future, was developed in 2008. This plan proposes seven strategies to support a renewable and efficiency portfolio standard and to develop an alternative transportation fuel standard and set fuel production goals.
