The North Florida Clean Fuels Coalition was redesignated by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for the next four years. As part of the national Clean Cities Program, coalitions receive initial designation and must reapply every four years to continue in the program. Official designation provides access to funding and a host of resources.
We appreciate the DOE recognition and comments from Mark S. Smith, Technology Integration Program Manager:
“As demonstrated in the webinar, despite being the newest Clean Cities coalition, the North Florida Clean Fuels Coalition has had a tremendous impact already, more than tripling the number of gasoline gallon equivalents replaced by alternative fuels and similarly reducing greenhouse gas emissions since your designation just six years ago. We commend you on your fuel neutral approach, as evidenced by using CMAQ funding for Florida East Coast Railways’ first liquefied natural gas (LNG) rail car, compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles in the City of Jacksonville and St. Johns County, and the installation of 40 Level 2 EV chargers in the region. The relationship between the coalition and its host agency, the North Florida Transportation Planning Organization (TPO), is impressive and a model for other coalitions.”
The North Florida Clean Fuels Coalition thanks our board, stakeholders, partner agencies and host agency, the North Florida TPO, for their support and participation.
