Chicago Area Alternative Fuels Deployment Project

The Chicago Area Alternative Fuels Deployment Project deployed alternative fuel and hybrid vehicles and installed alternative fuel fueling and electric vehicle charging stations throughout the Chicago region. The project included a wide variety of project partners (large and small private companies, municipalities, non-profits, and utilities) and alternative fuels/advanced vehicle technologies (electric vehicles, compressed natural gas, propane, E-85, and hybrid technologies). By embracing all types of partners and fuels, these ambitious projects were able to build sustainable clean vehicle programs that optimized petroleum displacement and environmental benefits. Chicago’s transportation landscape was transformed by the addition of green vehicles and fueling stations that helped promote energy security, reduce transportation costs, and improve air quality. In total, the project deployed more than 400 clean vehicles and 225 alternative fueling stations.
