SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. — Today, 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.
