DuPont CEO: Renewable Fuel Standard a model for private/public collaboration
Posted 26 February 2013 in
Today, DuPont Chair and CEO Ellen Kullman spoke at the 2013 Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) Energy Innovation Summit, explaining that cooperation between government and the private sector, as well as innovative science, is the key to developing new sources of energy and finding alternatives to oil.
Kullman went on to say that the production of renewable fuel, encouraged by the Renewable Fuel Standard, is a perfect example of such collaboration:
Good government policy is critical and supports technology development and early manufacturing until the new technology is mature enough to stand on its own. There is no better illustration of this than the Renewable Fuel Standard. The RFS has succeeded in doing what Congress intended it to do. Continued policy stability will ensure continued progress – meaning renewable fuels technologies developed and optimized to reach the scale and maturity needed to permanently impact American energy security and consumer choice.
Join the Fight
Renewable fuel is more important than ever – driving economic growth in communities that need it, improving our nation’s energy security and attracting millions in new technology dollars to invest in America’s future.
