Washington, D.C. Gathering on a Five-Year Alt Fuels Plan

The U.S. Department of Energy is hosting a meeting at its Washington headquarters on February 25 to help develop a five-year strategic plan for the Clean Cities program.

CleanCities_logoOfficials will identify “strategic opportunities to increase the deployment of alternative fuel vehicles and to employ emissions-reducing technologies,” states an invitation to stakeholders.

“It has been five years,” the agency says, “since DoE Clean Cities convened its coalitions, national laboratories, and energy and transportation experts to take stock of the program’s progress and direction.”

2.5 Billion Gallons by 2025

“By gathering expert opinions on current and future opportunities, DoE Clean Cities will construct a plan that will advance the energy, economic, and environmental security of the United States and prepare us for meeting the Clean Cities national goal of displacing 2.5 billion gallons of petroleum per year, by 2020.

Clean Cities coalitions and stakeholders have saved nearly 6.5 billion gallons of petroleum since the program's inception in 1993 – one billion gallons in 2013 alone.

Clean Cities displaced one billion gallons of conventional fuels for the first time last year (F&F, November 24).

“This plan will be used to guide decision-making for Clean Cities nationally, and to guide the work of the coalitions in achieving their local objectives.”

Fuels and technologies to be assessed include natural gas, biofuels, propane-autogas, plug-in electric vehicles and idle reduction and fuel economy by both fleet and consumer vehicles.
