As Tucker Perkins, President and CEO of the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) talks to energy thought leaders, whether it be people in the energy business, writers of national publications about energy issues, or others, often he finds they have simply not given too much thought to a future for propane in the energy world. Too often, they admit to just thinking of propane as a fuel to heat their grill.
Some of your customers and friends may see propane as having a much more limited potential in the energy marketplace in the future than it does. A video of Perkins speaking to Energy Thought Leaders at an Energy Thought Summit in Austin, TX in April provides a 16-minute overview of a great way to frame the discussion. Perkins discusses how propane can help lead us to a lower-carbon future while still providing equity, environmental and economic benefits.
