Key Takeaways: Beyond Electric Vehicles

  • Tucker Perkins is the President and CEO of the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC).
  • In the podcast interview, Tucker and Joe discuss beyond electric vehicles.
  • There are many challenges facing the transportation and logistics industry regarding reducing greenhouse gas emissions and meeting sustainability goals.
  • Propane is a cleaner, greener option that is often overlooked.
  • There are many advantages to using propane in transportation and logistics including:
    • Propane fuel has a lower carbon content than conventional gasoline and diesel fuel. When used as a vehicle fuel, propane can offer life cycle greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions benefits over conventional fuels, depending on vehicle type, age, and drive cycle.
    • Propane exhaust is also colorless and almost odorless, making it ideal for locations where air quality is a concern.
    • Diesel engines may be prohibited in certain areas due to their emissions. A propane engine is also quieter than diesel and gasoline engines.
  • Propane is frequently used to replace gasoline in smaller off-road applications, such as forklifts and commercial lawn equipment, and it provides benefits like those achieved in on-road vehicles.
  • The potential for lower maintenance costs is one reason behind propane's popularity for use in light- and medium-duty vehicles, such as trucks and taxis, and for heavy-duty vehicles, such as school buses.
  • Propane vehicles have been widely used and refined for decades, and a propane vehicle's power, acceleration, and cruising speed are like those of conventionally fueled vehicles.
  • The Propane Education & Research Council is a nonprofit that provides leading propane safety and training programs and invests in research and development of new propane-powered technologies. PERC is operated and funded by the propane industry. PERC programs benefit a variety of markets including transportation, agriculture, commercial landscaping, residential, and commercial building.
