Facilities that produce low-carbon fuels to sell credits within the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) program face ever-increasing benchmarks to reduce their carbon intensity (CI) scores to maximize revenue. In the production of these low carbon fuels such as renewable natural gas (RNG), biofuels, hydrogen, ethanol and alternative jet fuel, clean energy microgrids bring a new dimension to the business case for the addition of a microgrid or distributed energy resource to a production facility.
