Alternative Fueling Infrastructure Feasibility Study

Archived: 11/01/2009

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), the New York State Thruway Authority, and the New York Department of Environmental Conservation have undertaken a study regarding the feasibility and construction of alternative fueling facilities at gasoline stations located along the New York State Thruway. Once finalized, NYSERDA will prepare and deliver to the governor a report that will include, but not be limited to, the following: 1) the current availability of the various alternative fuels and associated technologies which use alternative fuels for transportation purposes; 2) the projected growth in the availability and use of alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) for the next 10 years; 3) the current and projected price of the various alternative fuels, AFVs, and alternative fueling equipment for the next 10 years as well as the current and projected cost of operation of alternative fuel vehicles, including incremental cost comparisons; 4) the feasibility of each thruway public facility containing a gasoline station to accommodate one or more alternative fueling facilities.
