Southeast Alternative Fuel Deployment Partnership

The Center for Transportation and the Environment (CTE) is partnering with the Clean Cities Coalition Network and fleets in Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina to support the integration of a variety of alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) and fueling infrastructure. CTE and its partners will offset the initial capital cost of AFVs and infrastructure, promote opportunities for collaboration and strategic partnerships among alternative fuel market players, and support the development of alternative fuel corridors.

As of 2018, CTE has incentivized the purchase or installation of approximate 45 compressed natural gas vehicles (CNG), 20 plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, 20 all-electric vehicles, 3 CNG fueling stations, and several light-duty electric vehicle charging stations. CTE is currently evaluating initial key performance indicators for these vehicles. This project will ultimately incentivize approximately 300 AFVs, collect 12 months of operational and maintenance data for incentivized vehicles, and develop best practices, policies, and case studies to aid in future AFV fleet expansion.
