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.

No One Silver Bullet, But a Lot of Silver Beebees

The Indiana Office of Energy Development (OED) and the Greater Indiana Clean Cities Coalition (GICC) partnered with nine public- and private-sector organizations to implement a comprehensive alternative fuel plan that sought to displace over one million gallons of petroleum per year. The project also sought to assist with the creation and retention of Hoosier jobs and to grow Indiana’s alternative fuels market. The project focused on fuel neutrality—implementing the right fuel into the right fleet—based on fleet function, budgetary needs, and desired results. The alternative fuels funded include propane, compressed natural gas, E85, and hybrid vehicles. Major activities included funding 19 CNG vehicles, 250 propane vehicles, 87 hybrid vehicles, 4 CNG stations, and 3 E85 stations.

Texas Alternative Fuels Pilot Project

The Texas Alternative Fuels Pilot Project was led by the Railroad Commission of Texas. The Commission partnered with 45 qualified school districts and other public entities across the state of Texas to fund the total incremental cost of 608 vehicles, including propane and natural gas school buses, medium-duty trucks and vans, and light-duty vehicles through grants. To enhance the project’s sustainability, the Commission also awarded grants to install or upgrade 31propane or natural gas refueling stations on properties owned by partner fleets. The stations allowed the fleets to lower their costs by buying fuel in bulk, receive federal motor fuel excise tax credits, and refuel at the times most convenient to their schedules. Concurrently, the Commission designed and implemented a two-part public education program for Clean Cities stakeholders, fleet operators, and the general public involving all of the Clean Cities coalitions in Texas.

Development of a National Liquid Propane (Autogas) Refueling Network, Clean School Bus/Vehicle Incentive, and Green Jobs Outreach Program

The project involved the installation of liquid propane (Autogas) refueling infrastructure in U.S. metropolitan areas. The project also supported the purchase of new and retrofitted LPG buses, vans, and trucks. Finally, the project provided an innovative outreach program designed specifically for veterans and out of work or at risk service technicians to provide training to work in the alternative fuels industry. The program concluded with 85 operational refueling sites, 684 LPG vehicles, and many successful training sessions.
