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.
