Booster's Mobile Fueling on Demand Business Model Supports an Environmentally Just Energy Transition

As the energy transition progresses, ensuring equity in development and impact will be key to creating sustainable change. A recent study by Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies evaluated the mobile fueling on demand (MFOD) business model developed by Booster™ to find that MFOD can successfully support environmental justice while furthering the energy transition, lowering fueling costs and boosting efficiency.

Key Takeaways:

  • A scale-up of mobile fueling will accelerate the energy transition and address some of the most critical aspects of environmental justice.

  • This can support “just transition” by decreasing consumers’ time spent on fueling cars at gas stations, increasing access to mobility, diminishing the demand for gas stations in the long term, cutting fuel and other costs for consumers, and contributing to the decarbonization of the transportation sector overall.

  • MFOD enables fleets to save money on overhead expenses, reduce vehicle miles traveled outside of planned service routes, and support a supply chain with fewer vapor emissions, reduced spillage, and no ground pollution from underground fuel storage tanks of traditional gas stations.

  • Booster’s MFOD business model allows its customers to lower their carbon footprint and support environmentally sustainable business practices.

  • In the short- to mid term, MFOD can address and mitigate the pollution issues aggravated by legacy zoning rules and the closure of gas stations.

  • In the long term, MFOD can provide fueling services to these communities, increasing  fuel availability and accessibility for a wider group of consumers, including the disability community.
