The National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO) is presenting a unique webinar on July 17 that will address how alternative fuel vehicles can be integrated into states' energy-assurance planning activities.
The webinar is based on the premise that vehicles that run on compressed natural gas (CNG), propane autogas or other alternative fuels have proven their viability in helping to rebuild and maintain reliable energy infrastructure in the event of a disaster. Case in point: During Superstorm Sandy, CNG stations were some of the only locations where vehicle fuel could be accessed on the eastern seaboard.
Panelists Linda Bluestein, national director of the U.S. Department of Energy's Clean Cities initiative, and Jeff Pillon, energy security director for NASEO, will lead the discussion and help participants examine strategies to promote information-sharing and stakeholder coordination among state energy offices and Clean Cities coordinators. A Q&A will then focus on how collaboration can support the effective deployment of alt-fuel vehicles to meet critical public needs during energy supply disruptions.
The webinar will take place at 4:00 p.m. Eastern on July 17. To register, click here.
