Redesigned Web Sites Highlight Petroleum Reduction Options
October 26, 2007
The U.S. Department of Energy's redesigned web sites for the Alternative Fuels & Advanced Vehicles Data Center (AFDC) and the Clean Cities Program has handy new tools that assist fleet managers and communities in making informed choices among strategies for reducing petroleum use.
These web sites provide a one-stop resource for valuable information about alternative fuels and vehicles, hybrid vehicles, idle reduction, and other strategies. They include on-line tools to:
1) find fueling stations for ethanol, biodiesel, natural gas, propane, and other alternative fuels anywhere in the U.S., (http://www.eere.energy.gov/afdc/fuels/stations_locator.html),
2) identify incentives and laws for alternative fuels and vehicles in any state (http://www.eere.energy.gov/afdc/incentives_laws.html),
3) find and compare alternative fuels and hybrid vehicles, and
4) obtain information from the Fleet Experiences area from fleets that have used alternative fuels http://www.eere.energy.gov/afdc/fleets/fleet_experiences.html).
Using alternative fuels can have significant economic and environmental benefits for fleets and the driving public and can also help reduce our Nation's dependence on imported petroleum.
Clean Cities is part of the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's Vehicle Technologies Program. The program assists the nation in meeting its objectives for renewable and alternative fuels use by addressing the challenge of moving the United States away from the infrastructure and practices that contribute to dependence on imported petroleum and toward energy independence and security.
