 Fueling Your Alternative Fuel Vehicle Fleet:

Partnering EPAct Mandated Fleets and Clean Cities Stakeholders

to Deploy More Alternative Fuels

 Chicago Area Clean Cities Coalition


If you are an EPAct-mandated or voluntary fleet that is serious about finding alternative fuel infrastructure solutions through working with other like-minded fleets and fuel interests, then don't miss this event's only stop in the Midwest.  As a direct result of similar workshops, held at several sites across the nation, fleet-to-fleet and fuel-to-fuel provider partnerships are being implemented.  You will leave this workshop with all the information, tools, and contacts necessary to enhance opportunities to achieve compliance and expand deployment of alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) and alternative fuels.

 This event will:

        educate stakeholders on legal AFV and alternative fuel obligations of certain fleets;

        provide an overview of available alternative fuels and AFVs;

        provide detailed maps of alternative fuel stations and fleets in the Chicago area;

        encourage acquisition of AFVs and associated fuels;
