Colorado to Fund Low Carbon Fuel Standard Feasibility Study

The Colorado Energy Office has issued a documented quote (DQ) for services seeking independent contractors with experience conducting life cycle assessments and evaluating clean fuels policies to conduct a Low Carbon Fuel Standard Feasibility Study. The solicitation is published using the Colorado Vendor Self Service (VSS) website. Solicitation documents and information (including any amendments or modifications) will be updated with revisions on this site. Go to and select “Public Access”, where you can search for the DQ Number (2020000185).

The purpose of this feasibility study is to understand, and where possible quantify, the benefits, costs, considerations and feasibility (technical, administrative and economic) of a Low Carbon Fuel Standard Fuel Standard (LCFS) for Colorado. This study will examine and provide information on how an LCFS could be implemented in Colorado based, in part, upon experiences of other states and countries. The results of the study will inform decisions on whether or not to consider adoption of an LCFS in Colorado.

This study will consist of two phases. Phase I will conclude at the end of December. Phase II will provide additional analysis to inform, support and incorporate stakeholder engagement and policy and programmatic development.

The Colorado Energy Office has indicated that the budget set aside for this effort is $100,000. Amounts in excess of this will not be considered. Deadline for submissions is September 30, 2019.
