TIMELESS ADVICE FOR TOMORROW’S BUSINESS LEADERS
BLEEDING-EDGE PERSPECTIVES FROM THEM
Tuesday September 22, 12:00 PM-12:40 PM
Diversified Energy Specialists
The energy industry is undergoing a rapid transition away from carbon intensive fuels. The heating oil industry has been losing market share to competing fuels for the last twenty years, but a transition to low-carbon fuels could alter the competitive landscape. The transformation of the energy industry will have a detrimental effect on heating fuels that do not have the ability to reduce their carbon intensity and do not have a well-defined path to net-zero carbon emissions. This presentation will explore the life-cycle analysis and economics of all heating fuels, their ability to reduce carbon intensity, and how policy will impact future market share.

The next generation of industry leaders will be living in a new biofuels world where mechanisms like the RFS may define both supply and pricing of biofuels in the future. The Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) is a federal program that requires diesel sold in the United States to contain a minimum volume of renewable fuels, i.e. biofuel. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administers the RFS program and establishes volume requirements for biofuels. Certain companies are obligated by the RFS to either buy the biofuels or purchase credits, called RINs, that represent biofuel production. Thus both volume of production, purchasing of biofuels, and pricing through RINS on an open market all come into play with the RFS and is one path biofuel markets may evolve into over years to come, and that future marketers need to understand. It may become as important to understand as understanding trading of heating oil on the NYMEX. This session will also look at how the RFS affects your investment in biofuels currently; which businesses stand to profit most from RIN trading.
