Workshop Product

Following each workshop, we relied on participant feedback to identify information gaps and other needs related to the workshop topic. We created materials like case studies, fact sheets, and tools based on this feedback. Below are all workshop products for the Alternative Fuel Toolkit website.

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

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.
