Methanol Policy Forum 2012 - Washington D.C.
U.S. Energy Security Council Luncheon
When we talk about Washington power brokers, we usually mean men and women that have served in a President's cabinet, the US Congress, individuals who have held high military rank, and industry titans. The United States Energy Security Council is made up of all of the above.
The goal of the Council is to highlight and promote a fresh approach to solving America's oil predicament, working to ensure that new cars sold in the U.S., and by extension, consumers throughout the world, will benefit from a competitive fuel marketplace, and that non-petroleum fuels, whether liquids, gas or electricity can compete against oil in a free market environment.
MI was pleased to welcome the Council to speak as a part of the Methanol Policy Forum, and they offered their thoughts during a luncheon session titled "Energy Security through Fuel Choice."

- Moderator: Anne Korin, Co-Director, Institute for the Analysis of Global Security
