An NJ Spotlight Roundtable: Building NJ's Infrastructure for a Clean-Fuel Future
Cleaner air in New Jersey means the widespread adoption of cleaner fuels. But for that to happen, there needs to be an extensive infrastructure that can deliver these fuels to low-emission vehicles. Who builds it and how it gets built are just two of the questions explored in this roundtable.
At first blush, one of the keys to cleaner air in New Jersey appears almost obvious: cleaner fuels for transportation. And while motor vehicle manufacturers are developing more low-emission vehicles, a critical question remains: How will tomorrow's cars, trucks, and buses be powered? Will they be plug-in electric vehicles, compressed natural gas, or something else all together?
Equally essential: How and where will these vehicles be refueled? Should private entities be building these nongasoline fueling stations of the future? Should ratepayers be shouldering the cost? What role should the government play?
On November 15, NJ Spotlight brought together representatives from clean energy advocacy groups and private industry to explore these concerns in Building NJ's Infrastructure for a Clean-Fuel Future.
