NPGA Participates in CIBO Gas Panel
Last week, NPGA participated in an energy panel organized by the Business Council for Sustainable Energy (BCSE) to provide an overview of the 2021 Sustainable Energy in America Factbook to members of the Council of Industrial Boiler Owners’ (CIBO) Energy & Environmental Committee. During the panel, NPGA explained the environmental and energy resilience benefits of directly using thermal fuels, like propane, for energy-intensive applications. In addition, attendees learned about propane-powered combined heat and power (CHP) units and propane-air systems, two applications that highlight propane’s efficiency and economic value.

CIBO represents non-utility energy products and users. For more information, please contact NPGA’s Jacob Peterson.
