Inspired by Earth Day, CarRentals recently ranked alternative energy sources to power our future. Whether you’re interested in green energy or you’re looking for ways to make your business greener by encouraging carpooling or considering an alternative energy company car, check out the list below to see how each scored.
The list includes both common and out-of-the-box alternative energy sources that have been produced, tested or considered before. From electric batteries, hydrogen fuel, plant-based biodiesel, solar and wind, to chocolate, tequila, coffee and more.
Of course, mass production and adoption of these sources depends on many factors including affordability, available infrastructure, and technology, cost, etc. Therefore, in order to obtain their ranking, the below criteria was considered:
- Affordability (gas and car production)
- Available Tech and Infrastructure
- Exhaust Emissions
