Representing the only state vantage point in a forum well attended by production, investment, and technology parties, he conveyed the central premise of the Project: as biofuels can be produced at widely varying scale, assisting smaller production by towns and counties offers strategic opportunity and growing benefits.

Making civic production a deliberate strategic and policy goal was noted by attendees as both practical and, to date, apparently unique nationally.
