The National Oilheat Research Alliance (NORA) has released the sixth episode of its podcast series, “In the LOOP with NORA.” The podcast series looks at how the liquid fuel heating industry lowers carbon emissions from homes, along with an emphasis on heating system efficiencies and technical education.
In Episode 6 of “In the LOOP,” four State association leaders share their thoughts on the how their associations, member companies and States are working together to ensure renewable liquid fuels stay prevalent with policy makers as well as how higher blend home heating oil can help improve the consumer experience while helping the environment.
First, Chris Herb, President of the Connecticut Energy Marketers Association, talks about the efforts the State is playing in the transition to low carbon liquid home heating oil.
Next, Kris DeLair, Executive Director of the Empire State Energy Association, shares her thoughts on renewable liquid fuels and how the live-fire demonstration of the combustion from B5 to B100 helps illustrate how seamless higher blends really are.
Then, Ted Harris, Executive VP of the Pennsylvania Petroleum Association, offers his take on why his State is unique compared to other States when it comes to biodiesel standards.
Finally, Eric DeGesero, Executive VP of the New Jersey Fuel Merchants Association, discusses how his State and members of his association are handling the pressures on the industry to transition to a net-zero carbon future.
