Edgeworth Analysis on Changing the Renewable Fuel Standard Point of Obligation Submitted to the EPA

Feb 22, 2017

A report from Edgeworth Economics, a leading economic consulting firm, has been submitted today to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as an adjunct to comments from Growth Energy, an organization leading the effort to increase awareness of ethanol. The Edgeworth analysis was commissioned by Growth Energy. In the report, Edgeworth evaluates the economic arguments from a number of companies and industry groups petitioning the EPA to change the rules governing the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), as well as the EPA’s responses in its proposed denial to these petitions. Edgeworth’s analysis further provides independent opinions regarding the economic issues at stake.

Growth Energy’s comments and the Edgeworth analysis detail how a shift in point of obligation would be detrimental to growing the renewable fuels marketplace and would ultimately undermine an energy policy that has cut oil imports and reduced transportation-related emissions.

Please visit the Growth Energy website for the Edgeworth report.
