BRAIN-y Idea Helps Wisconsin Biodiesel & Ethanol

John Davis

Wisconsin will be getting $1 million to help put in E85 ethanol and biodiesel stations and infrastructure across the state.

This article from the Milwaukee Business Journal says that the new Biofuels Retail Availability Improvement Network (BRAIN) will fund the installation of 27 E85 and biodiesel retail locations around the state, as well as support the installation of biodiesel blending equipment at three terminals in Wisconsin:

DOEThe U.S. Department of Energy is currently reviewing the application and will soon finalize the list of public and private partners that will receive funding through the grant program. Technologies and fuels covered under this program include neighborhood electric, hybrid-electric, plug-in hybrid electric, compressed natural gas, E85 and biodiesel.

The announcement comes on the heels of $15 million in stimulus funding announced last week for Wisconsin for clean transportation projects through the federal Clean Cities program. That money is paying for more than 500 alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles through 119 public and private fleets throughout the state, as well as helping install 10 alternative fuel refueling sites.
