The Renewable Fuels Association is pleased to announce that Kevin Book, managing director of ClearView Energy Partners, will offer a keynote presentation on market trends and the global energy transition at the upcoming National Ethanol Conference. Book will provide a timely outlook on world energy markets against the backdrop of the war in Ukraine, rapidly changing geopolitics, emerging clean energy and climate policies, the ESG movement, growth in EVs, and other emerging issues.


“Global market and policy dynamics are rapidly shifting and, in response, the energy industry is quickly evolving,” said RFA President and CEO Geoff Cooper. “It is more important than ever before that the ethanol industry  stays on top of these emerging challenges and opportunities. Kevin Book has the expertise and experience to help us understand what lies ahead, and we look forward to his perspective on how renewable fuel producers and other stakeholders can best navigate the changing energy landscape. Kevin has a unique understanding of the intersection between energy politics and energy markets, and we know the NEC audience will find his remarks to be insightful and thought-provoking.”


Book heads the research team at ClearView and covers oil, natural gas, refined products and coal policy. He appears frequently within print and broadcast media, contributes to policy forums, and meets with top Washington decision-makers. Book has also testified before several House and Senate committees. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the National Petroleum Council, a self-funded advisory body to the Secretary of Energy. Book also is a nonresident senior associate with the Energy and National Security Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. He holds a master’s degree in law and diplomacy from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and a bachelor’s degree in economics from Tufts University.


The National Ethanol Conference is the nation’s most widely attended executive-level conference for the ethanol industry, taking place February 28 to March 2 at Rosen Shingle Creek Resort in Orlando. Book will speak in the morning session on Wednesday, March 1. For more information and to register, click here. Advance registration saves $100 per person and ends January 28.
