Farm Credit Supports 25x'25 Alliance with Renewable Energy Grant

Wed, 07 Dec 2011 10:26:47 CST

Farm Credit Supports 25x'25 Alliance with Renewable Energy Grant The National 25x'25 Alliance announced today that Farm Credit has committed $50,000 to help the alliance promote the energy solutions offered by our nation's farms, ranches and forestlands, and work to build consensus on stable, comprehensive and long-term energy policies that make use of those solutions.

"The Farm Credit System's financial performance will be directly impacted by the degree to which agricultural- and forestry- based energy solutions are integrated into America's energy future," said Ernie Shea, 25x'25 project coordinator. "The Alliance is extremely grateful for this financial support. Farm Credit is helping to maximize the role of the agriculture and forest sectors in our nation's evolving clean energy future."

"Farm Credit's mission is to support agriculture and rural America, and the 25 x '25 mission aligns with that in many ways," said Christina Bowen, national contributions director for Farm Credit.

The grant will support Alliance efforts to reframe the national energy conversation from discussions of cost and sacrifice to ones highlighting how clean energy solutions from farms, ranches and forests will create jobs, drive economic development, improve national security and provide valuable ecosystem services.

The Farm Credit grant will also help enable the Alliance continue its efforts in bringing together feedstock producers, technology providers and special interests groups to explore pathways to a clean and secure energy future.

Furthermore, Farm Credit's support reinforces the Alliance's efforts to overcome differences among renewable fuel groups, bioenergy feedstock providers, animal agriculture stakeholders and other natural allies that can participate and benefit from a 25x'25 future. "The grant will be critical in our work to eliminate the divisions in a sector that should be united in advocating for the food, feed, fiber, fuel solutions and environmental services that can be sustainably delivered from the land," Shea said.
