Gov. Terry Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds will discuss the significant role biofuels play in Iowa’s energy future at the 2017 Iowa Renewable Fuels Summit at the end of the month. Branstad and Reynolds’ appearance follows the recently-announced Iowa Energy Plan, and biofuels are an essential part of that strategy. Iowa Renewable Fuels Association Executive Director, Monte Shaw, says, “Gov. Branstad and Lt. Gov. Reynolds have long been champions for Iowa biofuels, and we are excited to hear their take on how biofuels will benefit our state as a significant component of the Iowa Energy Plan.” Shaw is seeking to work with Branstad and Reynolds to expand consumer access to biofuels. The Summit is free to attend and open to the public, but registration for the event is required. The conference takes place at the Meadows Conference Center at Prairie Meadows in Altoona. The last day to register is Friday, Jan. 27, and a link to sign-up can be found included with this story on our website.
