GLACC’s recently conducted Annual Petroleum Reduction Survey shows that transportation stakeholder in the tri-county region reduced petroleum consumption in 2011 by 1,458,893 gallons- a 27% increase over 2010 survey results!
Every year, the U.S. Department of Energy sponsors GLACC’s Annual Petroleum Reduction Survey to measure petroleum reduction through categories such as alternative fuel and advanced vehicle use, fuel economy improvements, idle reduction, and vehicle miles traveled reduction. GLACC’s survey contributes to the DOE’s annual petroleum reduction report that compiles fuel displacement information from nearly 100 Clean Cities coalitions across the U.S. This information offers insights on fuel and vehicle trends and shows the DOE the progress mid-Michigan is making to advance energy, economic, and environmental security.
Fifteen transportation stakeholders participated in GLACC’s Annual Survey this year. Participants included fuel distributors, local school districts, and private and public fleets. In addition to reducing nearly $1.5 million gasoline gallon equivalents, the 2011 Annual Survey shows that GLACC stakeholder reduced their greenhouse gas emissions by 12,521 tons.
