DOE Launches Online Tool for Alternative Fuel

The Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory launched an online tool for fleet managers to evaluate the benefits of using alternative fuels.

The Petroleum Reduction Planning Tool allows fleet managers to enter the specifics of their fleet and see how much petroleum they would save by using a variety of alternative fuels.

“A fleet manager can explore multiple strategies and know what the energy and environmental impacts will likely be before making any substantial investments,” said Witt Sparks, NREL project manager.

The tool compares the benefits of biodiesel, electricity, ethanol, natural gas and propane.
