Anti-idling for service vehicles

When a diesel vehicles idles, significant amounts of fuel is burned to, for example, keep the cab cooled/heated or keep goods refridgerated. As a result, there is a high demand for new "green" systems that can produce the energy needed for these auxillary systems without burning diesel fuel.
