Introducing The Center for Alternative Fuels


The Center for Alternative Fuels will serve 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 will help 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.
