01.16.18 | Blog | By:

I didn’t want to get too far into 2018 without taking a quick run back through 2017, and featuring some of my favorite blog posts and podcast interviews. It was quite a year! There were car ban announcements at the national and local levels, and there were point of obligation issues. There were new policies affecting biofuels that went in different directions, such as the EU’s revised Renewable Energy Directive (REDII), Brazil’s RenovaBio and Canada’s Clean Fuels Standard framework. There were new fuel economy policies, such as in China, and tons of speculation around the future of electrification. Below are my top 5 favorite posts and podcast interviews from 2017.
