DoE Launches Alternative Fuel / Charging Station Locator App


The Department of Energy (DOE) just launched a mobile app version of its Alternative Fueling Station Locator.

The app, available for free for iPhone and iPad, provides information on 15,000-plus stations in the US.

The stations include B20, CNG, E85 and several other “fuels.”

Of course, we see no need for those “fuels.”

Important to us in the inclusion of all public charging stations in the app.

The app allows users to see payment methods accepted at the listed stations, as well as a listing for what charging network is in use at a particular site.

If you’re searching for one more app to locate chargers, this app is exactly that.

No Android Love? DOE needs to get with the times.

They are with the times.

Does the app let me search for charging station by location category?
List/map all “Hotels” with charging stations.
List/map all “Restaurants” with charging stations.
List/map “Public Parking Garages” with charging stations.


I wonder when that will become a filter in Expedia; a checkbox for “has EV charging”.

Why does the DOE do these kind of things? This is a clear case where the private sector is better equipped to provide solutions. Shouldn’t they be working on the healthcare web site??? (low blow and not really germane but it felt good…).

I’d love to take a look at this app but I have an android phone so I can’t. But, I kind of doubt it’s better than Recargo.

I’m not sure why you think the Department of Energy should be working on the healthcare web site…

But as for your greater question, I agree that there are better places to spend DOE money. Like helping deploy QC infrastructure along the nation’s highways, perhaps?

Their site doesn’t show many of the nearby charging stations around me, so if you’re running an Android device, you’re not missing anything.
