ALBANY — In the event of a vehicle emergency, firefighters are trained on how to safely enter a disabled vehicle and free its occupants. But times are changing and not all vehicles operate with standard internal combustion engines. Responders could face unfamiliar dangers in the form of extremely high voltage.
That’s why a dozen or so members of the Albany Fire Department were at Toyota of Albany on Ledo Road this past week, poking around the innards of some high-tech hybrid cars. “It a whole different thing with a hybrid,” said Jason Ribolla, training officer at the AFD. “These cars are silent when they’re running on electricity and if you don’t know what you’re doing, power goes to the wheels and the vehicle starts to move.”

Do you want to learn more about how much a compressed natural gas fueling station costs?
Clean Cities has been working closely with the CNG industry to create a report on the Costs Associated with CNG Vehicle Fueling Infrastructure (PDF file). This document provides an overview of the components of a station, factors that can affect the cost, and ballpark cost ranges. Look for the release of this document in early September.
Also, save the date for a Clean Cities CNG Infrastructure webinar on September 16th from 3-4:30pm ET. Mark Smith from the US Department of Energy and John Gonzales from the National Renewable Energy Lab will present an overview of the key components of a CNG station, how a CNG station works, and factors that affect the cost. Jeremy Talbot from Phoenix Energy will describe the design and costs of a CNG station on the smaller end of the design range. Graham Barker from ANGI Energy Systems will describe the design and costs of a larger CNG station example. During this webinar, participants will have the opportunity to ask questions about the presentations as well as the content of the related CNG infrastructure document.
This webinar is open to the general public, especially those considering CNG, and no pre-registration is required.
