Sustainable Energy Coalition's Sensible Energy Policies for Our Growing Economy Calls for Increased Ethanol Production

At a National Press Club briefing, the Sustainable Energy Coalition (SEC) today released its 2001 Sensible Energy Policies for Our Growing Economy, recommendations to the Administration and Congress for fiscal year 2002. The SEC brings together more than 30 national business, environmental, consumer, and energy policy organizations to advocate for federal energy policies that will lead to a cleaner environment and safe reliable energy technologies.

Noting the U.S. is increasingly dependent on imported fossil fuels, the limitations of U.S. refining capacity, and the growing threat of climate change, the SEC recommended that Congress and the Administration triple the production and use of ethanol to 4.5 billion gallons per year by 2010. The SEC supports enacting a Renewable Fuel Standard and using biodiesel or ethanol-blended diesel in all federal diesel engines. They called for opposing California's request for a waiver from the reformulated gasoline program's oxygenate requirement, prioritizing research to reduce the cost of ethanol production, and establishing a nationwide ethanol education program.

Eric Vaughn, president of the Renewable Fuels Association - an SEC member, made the following statement concerning the recommendations:

"Our nation's need for domestic, renewable fuels like ethanol has never been greater. The economic, environmental and security risks of our continued reliance on imported oil grows everyday. The U.S. is importing record amounts of oil, increasingly from the unstable Middle East. We cannot afford to bet our future in this manner. By emphasizing ethanol, the government can spark rural economic development, create American jobs, protect the environment, and put our country on a glide path to a sustainable energy future. Embracing the SEC recommendations would go a long way in making this promise a reality."
