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.
“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.
“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.
