Renewable Fuels Association CEO Geoff Cooper believes electric vehicles are important to reaching the Biden Administration’s goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, but biofuels also play an important role in the transition. “When you think about the continued reliance on fossil fuels for electricity generation, the difficulty of electrifying medium and heavy-duty vehicles and other barriers, I think it becomes clear electric vehicles alone will not get our transportation sector to net zero emissions by 2050.” Biofuels have been a challenging conversation with the Biden administration, but Cooper is hopeful. “I think it was encouraging to hear EPA Administrator Michael Regan make the remark that biofuels are going to remain as a central part of the administration’s strategy for decarbonization. It feels like we’re making progress.” Cooper testified during a House Ag Committee hearing on electric vehicles. Hear the story.
