Recipe for Fueling Diversity in the Energy Capitol of the World
The Recipe for Fueling Diversity in the Energy Capitol of the World project worked to expand access to natural gas, propane, and biodiesel transportation fuels across the eight-county Houston-Galveston area. Key activities of the project included conducting an assessment of current alternative fueling infrastructure in the region and creating a plan for increasing the future infrastructure to meet demand; incorporating planning for alternative fuel vehicles into the Transportation Improvement Program and State Implementation Plan; and creating a program with the region's community colleges to train fleet managers and mechanics, first responders, and permitting and code officials.
