DOE Shares Concerns on Lark Study

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) sent a letter to Growth Energy in response to our call for DOE to address the inaccurate and misleading study by Tyler Lark and others that claims to have been partially funded by the department.

“Failing to address this research’s inconsistencies and departure from mainstream science could have negative consequences in our nation’s quest to decarbonize the transportation sector—both on the ground and in the air. According to recent research by the Rhodium Group, our industry’s contributions in reaching net-zero emissions targets and decarbonizing the transportation sector will be necessary,” wrote Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor in her letter to U.S. Energy Secretary Granholm.

In response, DOE shared its concerns over the credibility of the findings of the Lark study.
