Implications of Alternative Fuel Use and Regulations in the Mountain Plains Region

The objective of this study is to provide an overview of alternative fuel use and potential in the Mountain Plains Region (MPR) as well as benefit/cost analysis of switching from traditional to alternative fuels (such as ethanol and biodiesel) for a specific university in the region. The study will analyze users who would be affected by alternative fuel policy mandates and also examine potential demand for such products. Included will be a comparison of existing alternative fuels and related effects on the transportation sectors, as well as an overview of associated mandates/incentives that have been implemented in other states.
