WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, the Institute for Energy Research announced that Charles T. Drevna is joining the organization as a Distinguished Senior Fellow. Drevna will advise IER on a variety of energy topics, particularly fuel and refining issues.
Drevna comes to IER with more than 40 years of experience in legislative, regulatory, and public policy issues involving energy and the environment. Most recently, he served as President of the American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers, the national trade association representing 98 percent of U.S. refining capacity, a position he had held since 2007.
Drevna released the following statement:
“I’m excited to be working with IER to advance free market energy policies. America is in the midst of an energy renaissance, but government policies threaten to prevent us from reaching our full energy potential. The Renewable Fuel Standard is just one example of a broken government policy that is holding the country back. We need the American people to stand up to Washington bureaucrats and demand solutions that embrace affordable, reliable, and abundant energy.”
IER President Thomas Pyle released the following statement:
“Charlie has spent his career on the front lines in the fight for energy prosperity. He’s a strong voice for free markets whose decades of experience will prove an invaluable addition to the IER team as we spread the message that markets, not mandates, offer the best opportunities for growth and prosperity. We’re lucky to have him and ready to get to work.”
Drevna is available for further comment.
