Calling all graduate and undergraduate students! We will be participating in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities Workforce Development Program this upcoming fall semester.
GLACC is happy to welcome nine new stakeholders who support the displacement of petroleum usage.
Earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Park Service announced that they are expanding their partnership by deploying alternative fuel vehicles in five national parks. Clean Cities coalitions across the U.S. will play an integral role in assisting each national park select alternative fuel vehicles that will best suit their needs.
Late last year, the EPA delayed its decsion on the renewable fuel standard (RFS) volume increase for biodiesel in 2013 for further review. The proposed increase would raise the RFS requirement from one billion gallons in 2012 to 1.28 billion gallons in 2013. Approval of the proposed RFS is vital to help the U.S. meet domestic and clean fuel goals. By sending a letter or calling today, you can put pressure on decision makers to move forward on this increase.
Since late 2011, GLACC has been working as a project implementation partner on the Plug-in Ready Michigan Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Readiness Plan. With four months to completion on this project, this summer we’ll see the completion of the Readiness Plan and activities to promote the plan throughout the state.
