New Visions for the Liquid Fuels Industry


Visions ’24 is around the corner. The National Energy and Fuels Industry (NEFI) conference will open Tuesday, April 30, for the first time since 2018. The Visions Conference will bring together heating fuel dealers, wholesalers, associations, service contractors, and the companies that support them for networking, business education, and legislative and regulatory updates.

This year the event is being held at the EnVue Hotel in Weehawken, New Jersey. Business sessions on Wednesday and Thursday will offer something for everyone, including seminars on artificial intelligence; succession and sales planning; renewable fuels, B100 and biofuel blends; fuel quality; new equipment; system modifications for higher blends of biofuels; clean heat standards and cap-and-invest programs; the electric grid and infrastructure; and more.

Registration includes breakfast, entry to the business sessions, the tradeshow floor, a cocktail reception on Tuesday night, and the Industry Summit. The tradeshow will be open during the business training sessions.

The “Take Action and Take Control of Your Future, Industry Summit VI” will include a kick-off session Tuesday morning that will review the successes and technological advances of the past six years. Wednesday’s program will feature explorations of state and federal regulations, fuel charges and carbon taxes, company and industry options, acquisitions, and consumer education.

NEFI has produced the Visions ’24 Conference and Industry Summit with the help of its generous sponsors: PriMedia, Global Partners, Beckett, Carlin Combustion Technology/Hydrolevel, Irving, Advanced Fuel Solutions, Buckeye Partners, and Gray3.

The HEAT Show will return in 2025. Dates, times, and locations to be determined.
