ELC 2021: E15 Expanded Market Development

Growth Energy’s Market Development team hosted the E15 Expanded Market Development panelproviding insight into our industry’s progress in expanding the market for higher ethanol blends and the process the fuel industry decision-makers go through to recognize E15’s potential and bring it to their customers. 

In 2020, despite the COVID-19 pandemic, drivers reached 20 billion miles drive on E15, an exciting milestone that reflects the growing popularity of E15 at the pump. Additionally, we saw a 10% growth of retail sites offering E15. Mike O’Brien, Growth Energy’s Vice President of Market Development, explained that that growth on both the consumer and retail side will continue as American become more aware of both the environmental and economic benefits of higher-ethanol blends.
