Accelerating the Adoption of Alternative Fuels


The Center for Alternative Fuels is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to supporting the growth of the alternative fuels and advanced vehicle industry. The Center  serves as a major hub of innovation, education, and adoption of alternative fuels and advanced vehicle technologies throughout Northern California.

Through the provision of a variety of valuable technical services—including a powerful new Fleet Analysis and Optimization process developed by carbonBLU—the Center helps regional municipal and private fleets accurately assess their existing carbon emissions and regulatory compliance; fully understand the economics of conversion to alternative fuels or advanced vehicle technologies; and take concrete steps that will help them measurably reduce emissions, ensure compliance, and save money.

Equally as important, the Center provides innovators and technology companies the resources and connections they need to develop and demonstrate their technology. Access to technical experts, demonstration projects and funding will all be facilitated at the Center for Alternative Fuels.

This initiative is made possible by the California Energy Commission, carbonBLU, Grant Farm, ECO, Inc and Alternative Fuel Advocates.
