With support from the U.S. Department of Energy Clean Cities Program, NASEO and the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) recently released two guides on natural gas fleets and electric vehicle charging infrastructure. These guides address key questions that private investors and state and local agencies may have about deploying alternative fuel vehicles. They underscore the important role of public-private partnerships and State Energy Office involvement in growing these markets.
The findings of these reports are based on a DOE Clean Cities project, “Unlocking Private Investment in Alternative Fuel Vehicles,” that NASEO led in 2013-2015 in partnership with the Vermont Energy Investment Corporation, C2ES, and Transportation Energy Partners . These guides were previewed, discussed, and shared earlier this year at a workshop that NASEO and DOE hosted for State Energy Offices and Clean Cities Coalitions. NASEO encourages the State Energy Offices to engage their local Clean Cities Coalitions on forming and implementing strategies and business models to advance alternative fuel vehicle markets.
