New fuel for vehicles topic of W.Va. meeting

Jul. 10, 2013 @ 09:12 AM

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — State and industry officials are expected at a meeting in Morgantown to discuss the use of natural gas and propane as fuel for vehicles.

The meeting Wednesday is sponsored by the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium. It’s a program of West Virginia University.

The consortium’s acting director, Bill Davis, says education is critical to transitioning state and private vehicles to new fuels, and that is the focus of the meeting.

Besides a round-table discussion, participants will also view displays of various alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin will be represented by a policy official.
