Are there any fleet managers or alternative-fuel experts in the house?

Our hats are off to our friends at the Clean Energy Coalition who are launching their Michigan Fuel Forward project, aimed at accelerating the use and availability of alternative fuel vehicles and infrastructure across Michigan.

Right now they are looking for fleet managers and alternative-fuel experts to participate in two phases of the project.

On one hand, they’re looking for fleet managers, from municipalities or government units as well as businesses, to get support from the CEC to help develop a petroleum-reduction plan for their fleet.

Participants will be required to:

  • Share fleet data about fuel use, miles traveled, and costs through the two-year grant period
  • Participate in focus group events (kick-off webinar, annual networking events, and interviews)
  • Have a desire to evaluate options and implement suitable alternative fuels, advanced vehicles, and driver efficiency training in their fleets
  • Have a willingness to create a petroleum reduction plan for their fleet with guidance from Clean Energy Coalition

Fleet managers interested in participating may apply by completing this application  by April 30; the program will begin in mid May.

They’re also looking for alternative-fuel and advanced-vehicle industry representatives to join a taskforce and assist with technical training programs. Interested? Complete this form by April 30.
