The latest alternative fuel workshop for fleet managers, hosted by the Propane Education and Research Council and other members of the Alternative Fuels Trade Alliance, will be in Seattle on Jan. 20.
The free workshop will be in the Summit Ballroom of the Holiday Inn Seattle-Seatac International Airport. This will be the 12th stop in a nationwide series of 14 training seminars in 2010 and 2011, which is made possible by a $1.6 million grant from the U.S. Energy Department. The workshops address alternative fuel quality, infrastructure, available vehicles, safety, the latest technologies and the environment impact of propane autogas, ethanol, biodiesel and compressed natural gas.
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 Jan. 20 workshop.
Remaining workshop sites for 2011 are Orlando, Florida, and Kansas City, Missouri.
