Ontario finalizes higher renewable content rules in gasoline over 2025-2030 with new regulation

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, November 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Government of Ontario has announced the consolidation of existing renewable fuel mandates into a new regulation, the Cleaner Transportation Fuels: Renewable Content in Gasoline and Diesel Fuels, and finalized its proposal to increase the current 10% renewable content requirement in the gasoline pool to 15% by 2030.

In 2019, Ontario updated its decade-old 5% mandate to allow a wider range of renewable fuels to meet the gasoline content requirement, and to increase the blending requirement to 10% effective January 1, 2020. The newly announced increase will be staged, with 11% in 2025, and 13% in 2028 before reaching 15% in 2030. These mandated levels will establish the highest minimum renewable fuel blend requirements in force to date for gasoline fuel in Canada.

The new regulation also specifies that renewable content is to have a carbon intensity that is 50% lower than that of regular gasoline by 2030; currently this is set at 45%.

Ontario was the second Canadian province to implement an ethanol blend requirement in 2007, and joins a growing list of provinces that are taking action on reducing transportation emissions in 2020; Quebec has introduced plans to adopt a new renewable fuel standard requiring 15% blending in gasoline and 10% blending in diesel by 2030, Manitoba has proposed to implement a 10% and 5% blend requirement in gasoline and diesel, respectively, effective January 1, 2021, and in July 2020, British Columbia increased its low carbon fuel standard to require a 20% reduction in fuel carbon intensity by 2030.

Ian Thomson, President of Advanced Biofuels Canada, noted “While much of the focus has been on the federal Clean Fuel Standard, provinces have recognized the urgent need for clear market signals to attract capital investment and support a green economic recovery. We know that fuels of the future will be low carbon; having a firm signal that establishes regional demand for the decade ahead supports capital investments in production capacity and fuel infrastructure to support an orderly transition to non-fossil, clean fuels.”

“We value Ontario’s continued work to reduce the impact of transportation greenhouse gas emissions in the province. Over time, we expect to see a diversity of renewable gasoline fuels used to meet the new demand, but ethanol has plenty of room to grow into a larger mandate. Expanding ethanol availability will give Ontario drivers more choice at the pump. Historically, ethanol has been less expensive than gasoline, and this may create the opportunity over time for lower-priced mid-level 15% ethanol blends as has been the case in many US markets. From a broader perspective, the province’s agricultural and forestry sectors and biofuel production facilities can benefit from new demand closer to home.”

“If Ontario determines that more urgent climate action is needed, this update to the regulations provides the framework to bring forward the staged gasoline pool increases on an expedited basis. It could also hasten comparable action in the diesel pool to support even deeper GHG reductions as diesel fuel demand continues to grow. Very low carbon intensity and cost-effective renewable options are widely available today.”

Tech Expert Yasmin Bashirova Discusses AI in Transportation and the Industry Disruptions Such Innovations Create

Yasmin Bashirova dives into the matter of AI in Transportation and why transportation is a part of the top ten industries AI will disrupt the most by 2030.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, November 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Yasmin Bashirova, Chief of Staff at Shift Technologies, Inc. and tech specialist, notes that transportation is predicted and has already proven to be one of the top ten industries that AI (Artificial Intelligence) will disrupt the most by the year 2030.

As Chief of Staff at Shift Technologies, Inc., Yasmin Bashirova, by profession, is familiar with the effects that AI has on the transportation industry.

Shift Technologies, Inc. is an e-commerce startup on a mission to bring trust and simplicity to the peer-to-peer used car market. In her line of work, Bashirova exercises her top skills, including research, data analysis, economics, and strategic leadership, while applying her background and abilities towards the AI space.

The transportation industry has developed immensely since its major historical milestone in the year 1787, the steamboat. The sector’s growth chronologically dates through bicycles and trains in the early nineteenth century, motor cars in the early 1890s, and aircraft in 1903.

In today’s transportation sector, technology has evolved the way people get from point A to point B through vehicles that self-navigate without human intervention. The modern science that continues such growth comes down to the contribution of AI.

AI in the transportation industry is the type of technology that powers machines with human intelligence. Machines hosting AI can mirror a human’s abilities and eventually automate manual tasks. This is beneficial as AI can take on monotonous and painstaking tasks, allowing more time to be dedicated to creative innovations.

Currently, AI in transportation has contributed to the betterment of self-driving vehicle technology, traffic management, delay predictions, and drone taxis. This integration has improved passenger safety, reduced accidents and traffic congestion, decreased carbon pollution and reduced the cost of transporting goods and people. Logistics and security are also benefiting.

As mentioned above, a significant industry change AI is working to solve is the issue of traffic congestion. Traffic details are currently collected through sensors and cameras installed along roads. These details are then digitized and sent to the cloud where an AI-powered system will analyze the information and determine future traffic patterns.

Last year, the global market predicted AI in transportation to reach 3.5 billion dollars by the year 2023. The future of AI in the transportation industry will bring more to automating the way humans travel and accelerate the development of other technologies through analyzing data and making determinations quicker with less human interference. Self-organizing fleets, smart containers, robotaxis, and smart cities are soon to be a reality through the power of AI.

About Yasmin Bashirova
Ms. Yasmin Bashirova went to college to become an energy resource engineer and worked as an Investment Banking Analyst at Goldman Sachs prior to working as Chief of Staff at Shift Technologies, Inc. She is looking to draw from her engineering, analyst, and finance expertise to transition into the AI space. Besides her professional accomplishments, Yasmin is also extremely active in her community, speaks openly on human rights and social justice issues, and strives to pave the way for young women to become tech and finance leaders.

Do Canadian Zero-Till Farmland Portfolios Meet ESG Mandates?

As a number of investors move to ESG mandates there is a need to find assets which are ESG compliance while providing suitable risk adjusted returns.

CALGARY, AB, CANADA, November 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — As a growing number of investors move to ESG driven mandates there is a pressing requirement to find assets and strategies which contribute to ESG compliance while still providing suitable risk adjusted return prospects.

One such strategy to consider is Canadian farmland, where zero-till farming is a common practice. Zero-till involves eliminating all or many tillage operations, and placing seed, fertilizer, or manure with minimal soil disturbance. There are several features of zero-till that contribute to ESG, including:

Reduced Fuel Consumption: The practice of zero-till has been shown to require less than one-third of the fuel per acre of conventional tillage.

Reduced Erosion: By leaving crop residue on the soil’s surface during periods in which no crops are growing, it is possible to reduce erosion. As a result, zero-till is estimated to have 10-20 times less erosion than conventional tillage.

Improved Water Retention: Crop stubble and residue helps soil retain moisture, instead of evaporating at the surface.

Reduced Compaction: Farm equipment is heavy and by reducing the amount of equipment passes, soil compaction is significantly reduced.

Carbon Sequestration: Research has shown that zero-till farming practices have contributed to increasing the carbon sequestration of prairie farmland by 400% since the mid-1990s. Research shows prairie farms are now storing more carbon than they emit and that Canadian cropland can sequester as much as 22 million tonnes of atmospheric carbon dioxide per year by using best management practices such as zero-tillage.

Who is Veripath: Veripath is a Canadian alternative investment firm. Members of Veripath’s management team have decades of farmland, private equity, and private credit investment experience. Veripath implements its farmland strategy in a way that seeks to preserve as far as possible farmland’s low-volatility return profile – the attribute that generates a material portion of Canadian farmland’s superior risk adjusted returns. Veripath does this by seeking to minimize operational, weather, geographic and business-related risks – and capture the pure return from land appreciation. Veripath holds over 32,000 acres in its portfolio and has experienced rapid growth as capital providers seek exposure to the Canadian farmland asset class. Veripath’s offerings can be accessed through several full-service Canadian broker dealers and on the Deal Square electronic order processing platform. Utilising a unique split fund, evergreen structure, Veripath opens the Canadian farmland thesis to the largest possible universe of investors and for the first time makes compliance with the various provincial farmland ownership regulations simple and straightforward. Canadian farmland allocations have several compelling characteristics that make them a worthwhile portfolio allocation for both institutional and retail investors and Veripath’s structures are available to both.

At 11.1% Growth Rate, Solar Tracker Installation Market Will Surpass $379.2 billion by 2026

Global Solar Tracker Installation Market 2019-2026: Business Development and Growth Opportunities by Industry Expert

PORTLAND, OREGON, UNITED STATES, November 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Global Solar tracker installation market was valued at $162.7 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach $379.2 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 11.1% from 2019 to 2026. Trackers are responsible for focusing solar panels or modules toward the sun. These gadgets change their direction to pursue the sun's rays to increase energy capture. In photovoltaic frameworks, trackers help maximize the angle of incidence (the edge that a beam of light makes with a line opposite to the surface) between the approaching light and the board. Concentrated solar photovoltaics and concentrated sun-powered cells have optics that focus the sunlight, so solar trackers must be placed accurately to achieve maximum sunlight.

The key factors that drive the growth of this market include increase in installation of solar panels across the globe. This is increasing the demand for solar tracker to direct sunlight toward the panels. Hence, it is expected that with an increase in solar installation, the demand for solar tracker will increase significantly. This in turn will drive the growth of the global solar tracker installation market. In addition, other factors such as environmental pollution, rising price of fuels, and growing awareness among people regarding clean energy are also expected to fuel the demand for solar panels and in turn solar trackers during the forecast period.

Download Sample PDF@ https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/request-sample/6320

The solar tracker installation market is fragmented based on type, application, and region. Based on type, the market is segmented into dual axis and single axis. The single axis tracker segment was the highest contributor to the market and is expected to grow with a CAGR of 10.8% during the forecast period. Single-axis solar trackers have both horizontal and vertical axis. The horizontal type of single-axis tracker is used increasingly in tropical regions where the sunlight is bright at noon, but the days are short. The vertical type of single-axis tracker is used increasingly in high latitudes where the sun does not get very high; however, summer days can be very long. The growing use of single-axis tracker in both tropical region and high-altitude region is expected to drive the growth of the market.

The dual axis tracker segment is estimated to grow with the highest CAGR of 12.1%. The growing use of dual-axis trackers in Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) applications is expected to drive the growth of the market. CSP application utilizes dual axis tracking for achieving maximum sunlight to drive devices using high power.

For Purchase Enquiry@ https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/purchase-enquiry/6320

In terms of application, the market is fragmented into residential, commercial, and industrial. The industrial segment was the highest contributor to the market and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period.
