El Centro de Informacion de Combustibles Alternativos (USA /DoE) actualizó el software interactivo para planificar la reducción del consumo de petróleo y emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero (GEI) en flotas de vehículos.

Have you ever wondered how much petroleum you're displacing by using biodiesel?  Now you can find out by using the Department of Energy's recently updated Petroleum Reduction Planning Tool (http://www.afdc.energy.gov/prep/).  This interactive tool can help fleets or other biodiesel users reduce petroleum consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
The tool includes five methods for reducing petroleum consumption -- use alternative fuel in existing vehicles (biodiesel and ethanol); replace vehicles; reduce idling; reduce mileage; and drive efficiently.  Fleet managers can plug in specific details for their fleet such as the number of vehicles, vehicle type and fuel economy, miles traveled annually, biodiesel blend level and percent of alternative fuel use -- and get the estimated petroleum reduction, GHG reduction and annual fuel cost savings.
The "what-if" scenarios allow users to create a comprehensive petroleum reduction plan by using several savings methods. Users plug in their current annual petroleum use and then set a petroleum reduction goal.
The Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC), a resource of the U.S. Department of Energy's Clean Cities program administered by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, developed the new Petroleum Reduction Planning Tool. To try it and see how you can save, visit: http://www.afdc.energy.gov/prep/.
