Iowa Governor Terry Branstad and Lieutenant Governor Kim Reynolds will discuss the significant role biofuels will play in Iowa’s energy future at the 2017 Iowa Renewable Fuels Summit.


Branstad and Reynolds’s appearance at the Summit will come on the heels of the recently announced Iowa Energy Plan, which includes biofuels as an important aspect of Iowa’s energy strategy.


“Governor Branstad and Lieutenant Governor 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,” said Iowa Renewable Fuels Association Executive Director Monte Shaw. “We look forward to working closely with the Governor and Lieutenant Governor to expand consumer access to higher ethanol and biodiesel blends.”
