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.
