Drive Electric Orlando

The Drive Electric Orlando project is a large-scale effort to address one of the core barriers to widespread plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) adoption: increasing consumer familiarity with the technology. Over the two-year project period, this project will allow thousands of visitors from across the United States to rent a PEV in Orlando. The project taps into the largest rental car market in the country by providing PEVs for a multi-day test drive. In addition to making the vehicles available, the project will use incentives such as equitable rental rates and theme park incentives to promote these rentals.

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.
