Alternative Fuel Vehicles (AFVs)

In order to increase energy security, we must reduce our dependence upon foreign sources of petroleum. The stability of our transportation future, and perhaps even the nation's economy, depends upon our ability to diversify our fuel sources and types.

By using alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs), you can help reduce vehicle emissions, provide domestic economic benefits and increase energy security.  AFVs run on alternative fuel sources including:

  • Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)
  • Ethanol
  • Propane
  • Electricity
  • Biodiesel
  • Methanol
  • Hydrogen

We encourage the displacement of petroleum using the latest proven technologies. There are a large selection of vehicles, from sedans, vans, pickup trucks, and SUVs to heavy duty dump trucks, street sweepers and buses that qualify as Alternate Fuel Vehicles.

Norwich Clean Cities can provide financial and technical advice and expertise when it comes to deciding which AFVs are right for your fleet.

For more information about alternative fuel vehicles, visit the US Department of Energy's Alternative Fuels and Advanced Vehicles Data Center (AFDC).
