National Mall and Memorial Parks

The National Mall and Memorial Parks has been a must-see stop in the nation’s capital for hundreds of millions of visitors throughout the mall’s 200-year history. The Greater Washington Region Clean Cities coalition has teamed with the National Mall in an effort to modernize its high-profile fleet. Clean Cities is helping to meet that goal by enabling the mall to acquire two plug-in electric vehicles, four electric vehicle charging stations (two for public use), and idle-reduction technologies. The mall is also partnering with the Propane Education and Research Council to deploy seven propane-powered mowers.

Nationwide AFV Emergency Responder, Recovery, Reconstruction & Investigation Training

The Nationwide AFV Emergency Responder, Recovery, Reconstruction & Investigation Training project will create new curricula as well as update existing materials created by the National Fire Protection Association on alternative fuel and plug-in electric vehicles. Building on an already successful resource, the project will expand existing training to encompass all alternative fuel vehicles, which it does not currently. The training will provide resources to the spectrum of responder and investigation operations that would be involved in a vehicle accident, including fire department, law, emergency medical service, fire investigator, recovery & reconstruction, and tow and salvage personnel. The NFPA will create materials that will be nationally-available and customized for each audience, including online resources, Train-the-Trainer classroom programs, videos and on-scene reference materials.

New Jersey Compressed Natural Gas Refuse Trucks, Shuttle Buses and Infrastructure

The New Jersey Compressed Natural Gas Refuse Trucks, Shuttle Buses, and Infrastructure Project was the first state-wide alternative fuel vehicle deployment program in New Jersey. The project deployed more than 300 natural gas refuse haulers and shuttle buses belonging to 15 public and private fleets, and six new compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling stations throughout the state, including: Newark, Camden, Trenton, Morris County, and Egg Harbor Township. The initiative also included activities to educate the public and other fleets about the benefits of using clean burning, domestically produced natural gas in vehicles.

New York State Alternative Fuel Vehicle and Infrastructure Deployment Program American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Project Awards New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) Complete Dec 2009

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.

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.
