Hoeven champions efforts to grow North Dakota’s energy industry

U.S. Sen. John Hoeven (R-ND) highlighted opportunities to grow North Dakota’s energy industry, and the importance of traditional energy sources, this week at the Basin Electric Power Cooperative’s annual meeting. Hoeven has advanced clean coal projects in North Dakota and earlier this year secured $30 million for carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) research. “Our ability to provide low-cost, reliable energy drives the country’s economy and impacts families and businesses from coast to coast,” said Hoeven, who serves on the Senate Energy Committee and the Senate Appropriations Committee’s Energy and Water Development subcommittee. “North Dakota is leading the way in developing some truly innovative technology, such as the Allam Cycle, Project Tundra and other clean coal projects, which will help our energy industry to produce more energy with better environmental stewardship and less emissions,” he said.
