UPS Ontario—Las Vegas Corridor Extension—Bridging the Gap

This project provided funding to partially offset the cost to purchase liquefied natural gas (LNG) trucks and construct a publically accessible LNG fueling station in Las Vegas, Nevada, adjacent to McCarran International Airport and the intersection of Interstates 215 and 15. UPS deployed 48 heavy-duty Class 8 LNG tractor trucks, while the station supports an additional 150 LNG vehicles in UPS’s California, Nevada, and Utah operations. The project also included an outreach effort to generate additional usage at the LNG station and ensure continued viability of the LNG corridor.

Midwest Region Alternative Fuels Project

Metropolitan Energy Center, along with19 sub-recipients, received funding support for projects to build alternative fuel stations, purchase alternative fuel vehicles, and convert conventionally-fueled vehicles to an alternative fuel. The project area included metropolitan areas in three states: Missouri, Kansas, and Nebraska. The project deployed 376 alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles and included 29 fueling station installations. The stations will encourage fleets in the area to further invest in alternative fuel vehicles and will create workable compressed natural gas travel corridors between and within the target metros. Another objective of the project was to use success stories to educate the public about, and increase acceptance of, alternative fuels.

DeKalb County / Metropolitan Atlanta Alternative Fuel and Advanced Technology Vehicle Project

This project was designed to increase the use of alternative fueled and advanced technology vehicles in Metro Atlanta as a means of reducing U.S. dependence on imported petroleum, increasing fuel economy, and reducing emissions. The project provided infrastructure that supports the use of alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles. As a result of the project, the region has gained a landfill gas conversion facility to produce renewable energy at a DeKalb County landfill, five publicly accessible Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) fueling stations, and one upgraded station to accommodate additional CNG fueling capacity. More than 200 alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles have also been deployed by Metro Atlanta-based companies, as well as city and county governments. In addition to the environmental and health benefits, this project has helped maintain Atlanta's competitiveness as various groups continue work to attract new businesses and jobs.

Low Carbon Fuel Infrastructure Investment Initiative

The California Department of General Services (DGS) and Propel Fuels built 36 alternative fuel stations to provide public access to low carbon alternative fuels for more than 600,000 flexible fuel vehicles (FFVs) statewide and included a comprehensive development program. This program included identifying and establishing lease agreements for station locations, designing, engineering, and permitting plans for the infrastructure and signage, engaging contractors to perform the build and manage construction, and marketing to the public and fleets to increase adoption of the fuels. These stations distribute alternative fuels including ethanol (E85) for use in FFVs and biodiesel (B20) to the public, as well as government and private fleets.

Heavy-Duty Natural Gas Drayage Truck Replacement Program

The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) Heavy-Duty Natural Gas Drayage Truck Replacement Program addressed a significant need to reduce diesel emissions and associated public health risks from goods movement at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. The two Ports, located adjacent to one another, constitute America’s largest port complex and are ranked among the busiest container ports in the world. This project replaced 219 older, heavy-duty diesel trucks servicing the Ports or other goods movement operations in the region with new natural gas trucks powered by ultra-clean natural gas engines. The project also included education, outreach, and training activities to promote the use of alternative fuel vehicles.

New York State Alternative Fuel Vehicle and Infrastructure Deployment Program

The primary goal of New York State Energy Research and Development Authority's (NYSERDA) Alternative Fuel Vehicle and Infrastructure Deployment Project was to expand the use of many different alternative fuels to a wide variety of fleets across New York state. NYSERDA worked with sub-recipients in the public and private sector that used vehicles ranging from small neighborhood electric vehicles (NEVs) to Class 8 compressed natural gas (CNG) trucks that operated everywhere in the state, from New York City to small towns like Minoa and Malone. In total, 395 alternative fuel vehicles were purchased. Among the light-duty vehicles, the large majority were CNG-fueled, thanks in large part to a major initiative by Verizon to convert a large part of its New York fleet to natural gas. Heavy-duty vehicles were split between CNG, propane, hybrid electric, and hydraulic hybrid. There were also 100 new fueling locations installed as part of this project, which consisted primarily of electric vehicle charging stations, but also included four large CNG fueling stations and three propane fueling stations.
