The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) and the Alternative Fuel Trade Alliance will be hosting an alternative fuel workshop for fleet managers in Albany, NY, on Thursday, Oct. 28.

The workshop will be held at the Crown Hotel Plaza. The free event is the seventh in a series of 14 training seminars being held around the country. The seminars are being funded by a $1.6 million grant from the U.S. Dept. of Energy.

The workshops cover alternative fuel quality, infrastructure, available vehicles, safety, the latest technologies, and the environmental impact of propane, ethanol, biodiesel, and compressed natural gas. Each workshop ends with a ride-and-drive event.

“Fleet managers eager to respond to customers’ growing interest in working with businesses that offer sustainable solutions will see the benefits of propane autogas and other alternative-fuel vehicles,” said Brian Feehan, vp of PERC. “Choosing vehicles fueled by alternative fuels result in fewer harmful emissions and less reliance on imported oil.”
