Energy Breakfast – “Bioenergy: Transportation Fuel Options”
Speaker: Don O’Connor, President, (S&T)2 Consultants Inc.
|Don O’Connor is a mechanical engineer with a broad background in energy and environmental consulting and in industry. His background includes over 15 years of manufacturing and marketing experience with Western Canada’s largest independent fuel retailer. He has had extensive experience with the production of biofuels, was responsible for the development of NRCan’s GHGenius lifecycle greenhouse gas model, and has a detailed knowledge of fuels and the fuels industry.
Don has recently provided strategic advice on fuels and transportation issues to a number of Provincial governments, several Federal Government departments and foreign governments. Mr. O’Connor has also consulted for a number of companies developing new technologies for alternative fuelled vehicles and companies developing new transportation fuel processes.
British Columbia has announced its intention in the recent provincial budget to become a top destination for clean energy dollars (see http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/bc-fuels-fight-with-ontario-over-bioenergy/article1495726/ ). British Columbia has also introduced both a Renewable Fuel Standard and a Low Carbon Fuel Standard for 2010 which requires that suppliers who sell gasoline or diesel in the Province must ensure that it contains a prescribed proportion of renewable fuel – ethanol produced from biomass (5%) or biodiesel (3% increasing to 5% by 2012).
Don will review these recent developments and their impact on the biofuel industry in British Columbia. He will also discuss the transportation fuel options that we will likely see now and in the near future.
