Mr. Hofmeister is the former president of the Shell Oil Company and authored the book “Why We Hate the Oil Companies: Straight Talk from an Energy Insider.” After retiring from Shell in 2008, Mr. Hofmeister founded Citizens for Affordable Energy, a public policy education firm that promotes sound energy security solutions for the United States, including a range of affordable energy supplies, efficiency improvements, essential infrastructure, sustainable environmental policies, and public education on energy issues.NEC.2016

“John Hofmeister is an innovative and energetic leader on issues surrounding energy security,” said RFA President and CEO Bob Dinneen. “As a former oil company executive, he not only possesses an insider’s understanding about how the oil industry actually operates but, because of his background, when he speaks he does so with a very credible and authentic voice. Mr. Hofmeister is the perfect choice for next year’s NEC because he wholeheartedly believes that the key to providing consumers with clean, affordable, and secure sources of energy is to implement policies that promote diversity in our energy supply.”

In addition to announcing Mr. Hofmeister as the headliner for next year’s NEC, RFA also announced that it has launched an official Twitter handle @EthanolConf and hashtag #RFANEC for the event.
