The AFV Toolkit Resource Library helps users quickly find valuable online resources related to alternative fuels, such as websites, research reports, and other tools. We've collected over 250 resources on alternative fuels from across the web. In order to make it easy to find what you're looking for, you can filter the library by the type of resource (such as a website or research report), the date the resource was published, and the topic of the resource (see here). You can also narrow your search with text. In addition, for each workshop conducted as part of the Deployment of Alternative Vehicle and Fuel Technologies Initiative, we identified resources specific to the workshop topic. To filter the library for that workshop, we have a tag for each workshop or you can click the links below.
