Clean Cities Guide to Alternative Fuel and Advanced Medium- and Heavy-Duty Vehicles Fuel Cells. Fuel cells produce electricity through a chemical reaction— typically between hydrogen and oxygen—with water and heat as byproducts. In a fuel cell vehicle, the electricity is used to power an electric motor that drives the vehicle’s wheels.

Alternative Fuel and Advanced Vehicle Search Find and compare alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs), engines, and hybrid/conversion systems. Some of the light-duty AFVs may count toward vehicle-acquisition requirements for federal fleets and state and alternative fuel provider fleets regulated by the Energy Policy Act (EPAct).

Part I considers the role of alternative fuels such as electricity, alcohol, and hydrogen fuel cells, as well as advanced additives and oils, in environmentally sustainable transport. Part II explores methods of revising engine and vehicle design to improve environmental performance and fuel economy.

Use the Alternative Fuel and Advanced Vehicle Search to find: Hybrid electric vehicles. Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. All-electric vehicles. Medium- and Heavy-Duty Vehicles. A variety of medium- and heavy-duty HEVs, PHEVs, and EVs are available. Use the Alternative Fuel and Advanced Vehicle Search to find electric-drive vehicles.

(VTT Working Papers; No. Research output: Book/Report › ReportCited by: 3. Includes guidance on whether conversions to full battery electric require alterative fuel vehicle certification.

Updated Certification Guidance for Fuel Converters (PDF) (22 pp, K, CISD[LD-AFC], February 3, ) Provides information for small volume manufacturers who convert vehicles and engines to operate on alternative fuels.

Fuels and Vehicle Technology Alternative Fuels Strategies. An alternative fuel, most generally defined, is any fuel other than the traditional selections, gasoline and diesel, used to produce energy or power.

The emissions impact and energy output provided by alternative fuels varies, depending on the fuel source. 3 Alternative Fuels. This chapter discusses the fuel production and use associated with striving to meet the overall study goals of a 50 percent reduction in petroleum use by and an 80 percent reduction in petroleum use and in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the light-duty vehicle (LDV) fleet by compared to the corresponding values in Powered by Truck Blue Book, the Price Digests VIN Decoding and Make/Year/Model search is a reliable trusted source for Light, Medium and Heavy-Duty.

Although biodiesel is the most commonly used alternative fuel in medium- and heavy-duty diesel vehicles, Fischer-Tropsch diesel and liquefied and compressed natural gas are also viable options. The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) publishes annual data about fuel use and the number of vehicles in inventory for four types of alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) fleets: federal government, state governments, transit agencies, and fuel providers.

The total fleet inventory and the total fuel used by these four types of fleets do not. The alternative fuel credit: Representing the only Sec. credit that does not involve some type of fuel mixture, the alternative fuel credit offsets a taxpayer’s Sec.

[Society of Automotive Engineers.;] -- Tentative/partial contents include: exhaust emissions from methanol, ethanol, and diesel fueled urban transit buses; sampling strategies for characterization of the reactive components of heavy duty.

Many alternative fuels are more often seen in medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles. However, application in light-duty conventional vehicles is growing.

Diesel, biodiesel, and ethanol are the Author: Steven Loveday. alternative fuel for vehicle propulsion, and while there are propane vehicles on the market, propane is not used as much as other fuels and has seen declining utilization rates in.

In AFVs, CNG is stored in cylinders at a pressure of 3, to 3, pounds per square inch. A CNG-powered vehicle gets about the same fuel economy as a conventional gasoline vehicle on a GGE basis.

CNG is used in light- medium- and heavy-duty vehicles. Listed below are incentives, laws, and regulations related to alternative fuels and advanced vehicles for California. Your Clean Cities coordinator at your local coalition can provide you with information about grants and other opportunities.

Propane. Also known as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), propane has been used for decades to fuel light, medium and heavy-duty vehicles. Although these vehicles come at a higher cost, propane gas is cheaper and can help break even on cost for vehicle owners and managers.Real-Time Energy Management for Diesel Heavy Duty Hybrid Electric Vehicles Article (PDF Available) in IEEE Transactions on Control Systems Technology 23(3) .Global Strategy to Introduce Low Sulphur Fuels and Clean Diesel Vehicles sets first global timeline for cleaner fuels: all countries adopt all countries to 50 ppm low sulfur fuels byand most countries go to ultra-low (10 ppm) sulfur in fuels by ; Strategy launched at COP 21 in Paris, the first global plan to reduce black carbon emissions from cars, trucks and buses by .
