Doug Dagan, Suburban Propane Partners’ vice president of strategic initiatives – renewable energy, was named to The Biofuels Digest’s Bioeconomy 500 for 2023. The list highlights leaders of the bioeconomy’s development and project deployment.

At Suburban, Dagan is responsible for supporting the company’s long-term strategic growth and diversification initiatives through the identification, analysis and execution of transformative acquisitions, strategic partnerships and investments in renewable energy opportunities. He is also one of the leaders of the company’s Go Green with Suburban Propane core corporate pillar.

“Doug continues to play a significant role within Suburban Propane’s renewables division, providing invaluable insight to help advance our brand in this important arena through analysis and strategic partnerships, and we are so pleased that he has been recognized for his efforts,” says Nandini Sankara, vice president of marketing and brand strategy for Suburban.

Dagan joined Suburban Propane after spending the past two decades advising public and private entities on all aspects of renewable energy projects, advocating for environmental and clean energy policies and supporting climate change initiatives. He has worked in private practice and with state, national and international organizations, including the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, the Natural Resources Defense Council and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

“When additional states beyond the West Coast take up low carbon fuel standards as a way to lower transportation sector carbon emissions, we will see an uptick in demand for low carbon renewable propane,” Dagan told LP Gas in his Propane Personality profile. “And, as decarbonization moves to the residential and commercial sectors for heating and cooking, we will see even greater demand for renewable propane. New demand will also come from new customers who are motivated to choose the lowest carbon option for meeting their transportation and home energy needs.”

Dagan holds a bachelor’s degree in chemistry and environmental studies from Middlebury College, a master’s degree in environmental management from Yale University, and a master’s degree in energy law and policy, and a Juris Doctor degree in environmental law from Vermont Law School.
