Growth Energy Kicks Off 2021 Executive Leadership Conference

Fri, 07 May 2021 10:04:08 CDT

Growth Energy Kicks Off 2021 Executive Leadership Conference Growth Energy, the nation’s largest ethanol trade association, began its 12th Annual Executive Leadership Conference (ELC), where the top ethanol industry leaders and innovators will participate in panel discussions, networking, and charity events.

Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor kicked off the event with a speech that framed the future of biofuels by addressing three key priorities to drive biofuel demand: building out access to higher blends nationwide, positioning biofuels as a climate solution in policy discussions, and expanding consumer awareness of biofuel, as well as highlighting how Growth Energy is working with the new Biden Administration to make these a priority.

“Our industry was built by individuals who know what it means to control their own destiny - to be the architects of their own fate. Over this last year, we have seen how resilient this community can be in the face of extraordinary adversity. Now, we’re going to show the world what this industry can do when the fight is no longer just about survival, but about framing a better, stronger, low-carbon future fueled by homegrown energy,” Skor said in her opening remarks

Prior to the official event kick off, dozens of participants attended the second annual Technical Forum, where panelists spoke on low-carbon technologies, protein prospects, and ethanol markets.    During the ELC general session, industry experts will present on topics ranging from global opportunities for expanded ethanol use, E15 activities in the states, the latest in carbon research, and emerging co-product markets. Attendees will also hear from keynote speaker, Joe Theismann, a former quarterback for the Washington Football Team and award-winning ESPN analyst.    Following panel discussions, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Michael Regan will give a virtual, live address to attendees, followed by a fireside chat with CEO Emily Skor on how the agency will approach the Renewable Fuel Standard and how biofuels can help decarbonize the transportation sector.     Conference attendees will also hear from U.S. Senator Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) and recorded addresses from U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, and a bipartisan list of Members of Congress.
