SEATTLE, WA - The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) has scheduled a free workshop for fleet managers that will address alternative fuel quality, infrastructure, available vehicles, safety, new technologies, and the environmental impact of propane autogas, ethanol, biodiesel, and compressed natural gas. The workshop is scheduled for Jan. 20 in Seattle in the Summit Ballroom of the Holiday Inn Seattle-Seatac International Airport (17338 International Blvd.).
Each full-day collaborative workshop involves a site in the Energy Department’s Clean Cities program, which uses local coalitions to promote training on alternative fuels such as propane autogas. The Puget Sound Clean Cities Coalition will host the January 20 workshop. Remaining workshop sites for 2011 are Orlando, Fla., and Kansas City, Mo.
PERC stated that at the conclusion of the workshop, fleet managers will have the opportunity to get inside vehicles that run on propane autogas and other alternative fuels.
