Advancing Technology in Petroleum Fuels

In response to a request from the U.S. Secretary of Energy Dr. Steven Chu, the National Petroleum Council (NPC) recently completed a study titled "Advancing Technology for America's Transportation Future".  The Secretary asked the NPC to analyze future U.S. transportation fuel prospects with a particular interest in addressing the technology challenges facing the introduction of new fuels and vehicles into the marketplace.  The outlook for next generation fuels, vehicles and infrastructure needs to align with US objectives for continuous improvement in economic competitiveness, environmental quality and energy security.  The Secretary also asked the NPC for advice on stimulating the technological advances and market conditions to reduce GHG emissions from the transportation sector.

The NPC assembled an extremely diverse cross-section of energy stakeholders, consisting of over 300 participating companies and NGOs.  The study is unique for both the range of topics it covers (engines/platforms, hydrocarbon liquids, biofuels, natural gas, electric, hydrogen); and its depth of analysis (technology, supply chains, and integrated analysis of potential fuel portfolios out to 2050).

Mr. Yosufza's presentation will include the key findings and insights from the study analysis as well as the recommendations that were presented to Secretary Chu.
