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.
Fleet optimization is the process of increasing efficiency, reducing operating costs and achieving regulatory compliance. These goals are reached by implementing facility upgrades, purchasing alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles, converting existing vehicles to alternative fuels, installation of fueling infrastructure, driver training, route optimization, telematics, and fleet reduction programs. We manage the activities of our network of service providers as they work with our client fleets to implement the optimization strategies outlined by the Fleet BLUprint. CarbonBLU provides fleets with, and manages implementation of economically and environmentally sustainable business strategies.
