Creating an Alternative Fuel Vehicle Training Network for Florida

The Creating an Alternative Fuel Vehicle Training Network for Florida project will establish an alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) training network for the state of Florida that adapts safety and technical training based on existing curricula for local needs. This project will establish training on electric drive, CNG and propane vehicles for first responders, college instructors, tow-truck operators, and salvage/recycling operators. Hands-on training will be supported with vehicles provided by the National Association of Fleet Managers. The project intends to integrate first responder training into standard curriculum in partnership with the Florida Department of Education and the State Fire Marshall.

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.

Denali National Park and Preserve

The most visited park in Alaska, Denali National Park and Preserve covers 6 million acres, located 300 miles south of the Arctic Circle. In 2013, the iconic park acquired one plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) and one photovoltaic-powered charging station to help reduce emissions in Denali’s "Front Country," home to several campgrounds, visitor centers, and administration facilities. The PEV replaced a gasoline-powered vehicle typically driven short distances. The charging station, constructed by local students, paves the way for expanded use of PEVs in the area and helps educate park visitors on the importance of shifting to domestic energy sources and advanced vehicle technologies and reducing emissions.
