Clean diesel fuel is poised to take on an even greater role in the U.S. transportation market. That statement is part of the newly-released Hart Energy Consulting report. "Diesel: Fueling the Future of a Green Economy" was released by the Diesel Technology Forum in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Energy's 2010-2011 Winter Fuels Outlook Conference at the National Press Club.
Allen Schaeffer, executive director of the Diesel Technology Forum, says while there has been a lot of speculation about the role of unproven energy technologies in the emerging green economy, this new analysis clearly highlights that clean diesel will play a vital role in the green economy both today and in the future generations of energy and transportation.
While there is much speculation on the transformation to energy sources like electric and natural gas vehicles, the Hart report states that diesel offers energy and environmental improvement without the need for development of an infrastructure to support the advanced technology. Diesel's unique capability to utilize a range of renewable fuels and blends enhances its desirability under emerging renewable fuel requirements.
