Representatives from more than 20 bioenergy stakeholder groups are in Washington today participating in the 2012 Bioenergy Partners Capitol Hill Day. Leaders from the biofuels, biopower and bioproducts industries, as well as agriculture and other related industry interests, are encouraging lawmakers and key decision makers to adopt a diversified national energy strategy that includes bio‐based renewables as a critical component.
An “all‐of‐the‐above” approach to energy policies and investments is expected to be the primary topic of a Congressional staff briefing and panel program in the morning. Afternoon efforts will include small groups making office visits with Congressional leaders and their staff, sharing with them the wide range of issues facing bioenergy, while detailing the opportunities that bio‐based energy solutions provide.
