Statewide Alternative Fuel Resiliency Workplan
Florida experiences the most hurricane landfalls, third most tornado events, and fifth most wildfires by acreage in the country. The objective of the project is to complete a comprehensive Statewide Alternative Fuel Resiliency Plan that utilizes multiple alternative fuels to provide redundancy, and therefore resilience, in Florida's transportation fuels. The project helps develop a best practice resiliency guide for alternative fuels for transportation as well as stationary alternative fuel generators, and documents lessons learned. The best practice guide provides insight regarding using alternative fuel vehicles as emergency response vehicles, alternative fuel supply chain strengths and weaknesses, and utilizing alternative fuel generators for emergency management facilities.
