Panel Two: Renewables and Biofuels – Policy Options to Overcome Today’s Challenges


September 30th, 2014
11.00 am – 12.00 pm
Location: 1100 New York Avenue, NW 7th Floor, West Tower


Join ASP and our panelists in a discussion about the next generation of energy technology and climate policy.


For nearly a decade, members of Congress have been working to push through legislation that would require greater appropriations for biofuel and renewable research and development. These efforts have been only partially successful, particularly as the U.S. is increasing its production of domestic natural gas.

The U.S. Department of Defense is pursuing plans to enhance our domestic biofuel production to further ensure the safety of our troops at home and abroad. Having a variety of alternative energy options ensures that our troops do not have to rely on a single source, giving them more options and flexibility on the ground.

These developments are important steps towards developing a real advanced biofuel industry that can help move us toward a point where we have other options for how to fuel our cars and trucks. Our panelists will discuss the ways in which biofuels and renewables are becoming a domestic reality and ensuring our security through meaningful policy changes.
