Clean Transportation Fleet Assessments
Alternative fuels and advanced transportation technologies are the focus of the Clean Transportation Program at NC State University’s NC Solar Center. The Center can assist local government in evaluating options and technologies relating to electric vehicles, hybrids and plug-in hybrids, biodiesel, ethanol, natural gas, propane, and other advanced transportation technologies such as diesel retrofits and idle reduction technologies. Also included in fleet assesments are best practices policies and costs, emissions and petroleum displacement benefits. Collaborating with government, non-profits and businesses, the Clean Transportation team strives to improve air quality and energy security by diversifying fuel supplies and promoting economic development that utilizes local resources and cleaner technologies.
