Since 2014, the North Florida TPO and Clean Fuels Coalition have invested over $6 million in alternative fuel vehicles and infrastructure, and the region’s clean fuel use has surged. From 2016 to 2022, clean fuel use has grown 276%, while clean fuels vehicle registrations have grown 413%, making the region a national leader in per capita clean fuels use.
This updated Clean Fuels Master Plan builds on past achievements and leverages local and national momentum to drive the next 10 years of clean fuels investment.
The Plan is a living document and our team will evaluate data from additional fleets as it becomes available and identify more opportunities for action.
The North Florida Clean Fuels Coalition is helping our stakeholders learn about and take advantage of opportunities provided through two major federal initiatives.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill was signed into law by President Joe Biden on November 15, 2021. It includes a $5 billion National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program to strategically deploy EV charging infrastructure and establish an interconnected network to facilitate data collection, access, and reliability.
Initially, funding under this program is directed to designated Alternative Fuel Corridors for electric vehicles to build out this national network, particularly along the Interstate Highway System. When the national network is fully built out, funding may be used on any public road or in other publicly accessible locations.
