Fact Sheets

For some workshops, participants encouraged us to create targeted fact sheets related to the workshop topic. We also used fact sheets for breakout sessions to encourage participants to think creatively and solve real-world problems. Below are all fact sheets created for the Alternative Fuel Toolkit website as part of the workshops.

Background and Considerations for Planning Corridor Charging

A document summarizing the background of electric vehicle charging technologies, as well as key information that stakeholders need to consider when planning corridor charging facilities. Developed by Marcy Rood at the Argonne National Laboratory.

Improving Alternative Fuel Access Along Clean Freight Corridors

This fact sheet describes five broad steps corridor planners can take to provide access to alternative fuels along clean freight corridors: (1) define the goal of clean freight corridor, (2) engage with key stakeholders, (3) consider the vehicle range, (4) assess alternative fuel availability in the region, and (5) identify and implement a station siting method.

Suggested Ideas for Incorporating Alternative Fuel and Clean Corridor Concepts into State Freight Plans

The Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), signed in 2012, directed the Secretary of Transportation to “encourage States to develop freight plans that are comprehensive and that include both immediate and long-term freight planning activities and investments.” Interim guidance developed by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) indicated which elements were required in state freight plans, and also included additional recommended elements and a suggested structure for the plan.

Alternative Fuels 101

Alternative fuels are transportation fuels derived from sources other than petroleum. Fuels can be produced from a variety of feedstocks such as food waste, natural gas, and renewable energy. Most fuels can be used in any vehicle class (light-, medium-, and heavy-duty), but the availability of vehicles and suitability of the alternative fuel varies. This page provides a brief overview of the most common alternative fuels, fueling station locations, and market facts on fuel prices and vehicle availability.
