Oil Heat Institute of Rhode Island Changes Name

New name is Energy Marketers Association of RI

The Oil Heat Institute of Rhode Island (OHIRI) has changed its name to the Energy Marketers Association of Rhode Island (EMARI), which will continue to serve the interests of Rhode Island’s Bioheat dealers and their customers. Rhode Island is the only state with a statewide biofuel-blending requirement for heating oil.

Many EMARI members also offer other energy products and services, including diesel, biodiesel, propane, fuel storage tanks, and high-efficiency heating and cooling systems among others.

“Our new name better reflects our members’ increasingly diverse and environmentally responsible companies,” explained EMARI Executive Director Roberta Fagan. “As Rhode Island looks to reduce its environmental footprint, EMARI members are poised to lead the state’s residential heating fuel sector to net-zero emissions by 2050. We look forward to continuing our organization’s groundbreaking efforts on this front.”
