Agencies have a number of choices when it comes to fueling options for bus fleets, when considering which fuels would be the most beneficial an agency takes into account several factors including price point, infrastructure needs, sustainable emissions and performance reliability.
Chad Lindholm, Clean Energy vice president, explained that natural gas is one of the cleanest fuel options available.
“Abundant, domestic and stable, natural gas helps transportation fleets operate cleaner, more efficiently and at a lower fuel cost than diesel. Clean Energy is focused on meeting the demand for renewable natural gas or RNG, a low-carbon renewable fuel that is made from organic waste and doesn’t require drilling. When paired the latest natural gas engine technology, fleets adopting RNG can realize low-carbon emissions,” said Lindholm.
