A symposium known as the Advancing Renewable Energy Conference gets underway on Tuesday in St. Louis. It’s a gathering aimed at helping to build the partnerships and strategies needed to put government and industry on the same track in advancing renewable energy sources. U.S. Under Secretary of Energy David Garman says one of the most visible indications of America’s energy situation is at the gas pumps, where consumers see the price has dropped quite a bit in recent months. But, Garman says lower pump prices are only a small part of the overall picture. Part of the home grown solution is ethanol, which comes from corn; and biodiesel, which comes from soy beans. The conference, which runs through Thursday, is hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
