  •  The right mix of different fuel types buildings can accept to eliminate waste.
  • Realistic approach to blended mixed fuel that sheds high amperage load from renewable resources to make it more powerful.
  • Propane Education Research Council (PERC),  the difference between pipe natural gas and liquid propane, and when to use it.
  • Propane technologies and innovations that impact energy efficiency in homes.  
  •  A few ways  the propane industry defines and achieves zero net energy.
  • The  misconstrued fact that zero net energy means all electric and demystify propane. 
  • The United States produces about four times the amount of propane we consume in the country. 

“One of the things that we work on at PERC from a research standpoint is increasing the availability of renewable propane. Renewable propane is exactly what it says. It's a renewable fuel that is derived from several sources. The primary feedstock right now would be animal fats or used cooking oil. The production of this fuel right now is only primarily consumed in transportation markets, particularly in California and Northwest, there is an incentive for those consumers to use that renewable fuel in the transportation.”
