Kicking The Gasoline & Petro-Diesel Habit: A Business Manager's Blueprint For Action

  • This new management guide has been written for business firms, government agencies, and non-profit organizations seeking to rapidly move away from gasoline and petro-diesel fuels. Written in business language understandable by anyone, this focused and practical compendium provides specific answers to the question: "What can we do about peak oil, global warming, and dependence on foreign countries for petroleum?" The report provides a wide variety of management advice including:

    (1) 30 specific reasons why organizations must now transition away from petroleum - these facts help convince top management that a transition effort away from petroleum is now required.

    (2) 36 internal political impediments to moving ahead with this transition - these viewpoints must be addressed if top management is going to take action, because the facts alone are often not enough to compel action, even though a transition away from petroleum may clearly be in the best long-run interests of an organization.

    (3) Pros and cons for 17 specific methods to conserve petroleum fuels - these pros and cons help management prudently decide which petroleum conservation methods are most suitable for a particular organization.

    (4) Pros and cons for 32 new technologies to significantly boost the efficiency of vehicles still using petroleum fuels - these new technologies are going to be very important as long as an organization is still using gasoline and petro-diesel fuels.

    (5) Pros and cons for 12 currently-available alternative transportation fuels - these points empower management to understand exactly why a particular alternative fuel should, or should not, be used by a certain organization.

    (6) 34 action steps to guide a successful transition - this clearly laid-out sequence of steps assists managers to see the way forward when it comes to migrating their organizations to alternative fuels.

    (7) 30 suggested criteria for making business-related transition decisions - these criteria explicitly define what is needed (such as compatibility with existing business strategies) in order for management to make a grounded decision to adopt a certain alternative fuel technology.

    (8) 95 criteria with which to evaluate alternative fuels - this long checklist provides a roster from which organizations can select those factors important to them, when they make their own decision to pursue certain alternative fuel(s).

    (9) 50 different management strategies for engineering a successful transition - these high-level management strategies help to assure that a minimum of resources are consumed by the transition effort, that the transition meets a particular organization's unique objectives, and also that an organization will be best prepared for high petroleum prices, petroleum-based fuel shortages, and related problems.

    (10) An annotated list of over 1400 references - these links allow readers to quickly obtain additional information about the topics discussed in this important new report.

    (11) Over 500 vendors that can assist with the transition - these firms offer products and services that can empower an organization to both accelerate and outsource the transition process.

  • The intention of this guide is to prevent organizations from having to do the extensive research that is necessary before a thoroughly-researched, grounded-in-business, and technologically-justified decision to move away from petroleum can be made. This resource book includes, in one place, everything that management needs to know about: what alternative fuels are available today, what energy conservation methods can immediately be adopted, what energy efficiency technologies can be immediately put to use, what the associated costs and benefits are, which of these options makes the most sense, and in what directions a particular organization should go.

  • With this report, management can save at least $50,000 in consulting costs, an amount that would be paid to hire a management consultant to generate a report like this. Management can also avoid having to wait six to twelve months before they get into action, a time period that would otherwise be required to generate a comprehensive special report such as this.

  • To conserve energy, and also to speed the delivery process, the publisher recommends that purchasers use only the electronic book version of this new guide. This version can be downloaded immediately after it is purchased. A hardcopy book, printed on recycled paper, is also available for an additional charge. This hardcopy book can be shipped to any location worldwide.
