Modular Package Can Save Fleet Managers Fuel – and Money

The Energy Department’s Argonne National Laboratory and the Clean Cities organization are promoting IdleBox, an electronic, modular toolkit designed to help managers of light- and medium-duty fleets save money on fuel while supporting a cleaner environment.

IdleBox“In the U.S.,” according to a presentation last year by Marcy Rood Werpy and Andy Burnham of Argonne, “idling consumes about 6 billion gallons of oil, costing about $20 billion.”

“IdleBox,” says Argonne, “includes a variety of tools – including fact sheets, signs, posters, stickers, idling calculators, an idling-regulation database, and technical information – to help you implement and reap the benefits of idle reduction.”

Interested operators are urged to get in touch with their local Clean Cities coordinator. A well maintained list may be accessed by clicking here.

Clean Cities is an initiative of the U.S. DoE’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.
