New application for iPhone helps users find stations offering electricity, biodiesel, natural gas, and other alternative fuels.
iPhone users now have access to a free application that locates fueling stations offering alternative fuels, including electricity, natural gas, biodiesel, e85 Ethanol, propane and hydrogen. NREL developed the new mobile application for DOE’s Clean Cities program. Clean Cities supports local stakeholders across the country in an effort to cut petroleum use in transportation.
The Alternative Fueling Station Locator App, now available through Apple’s App Store, allows iPhone users to select an alternative fuel and find the 20 closest stations within a 30-mile radius. Users can view the locations on a map or as a list containing station addresses, phone numbers and hours of operation.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory is the Energy Department’s primary national laboratory for renewable energy and energy efficiency research and development. NREL is operated for DOE by The Alliance for Sustainable Energy LLC.
