Fellow Clean Cities Coordinators from around the country shared past experiences of their successful activities at the Energy Independence Summit. They talked about how they have leveraged their Summit participation into relationships, visibility for their Coalitions and projects, and funding that has enhanced their local Coalition’s work at home.

        Post-Election Roundup: What the Results Mean for Alternative Fuels and Vehicles

        December 12, 2012

        The past four years have seen fierce partisan battles in Congress hold up what used to be bipartisan causes, creating uncertainty and delaying many helpful opportunities for stakeholders in the clean transportation industry. Our panelists will present the key opportunities in the face of gridlock, forecast what, if anything, will change with the President's new mandate, and share how alternative fuels leaders can get the most out of the next four years... and beyond.

        The election may have answered who the next President will be, but it raises many more questions. Will the President be able to work with Congress? What will be likely priorities in the second administration? What new opportunities will there be? Transportation Energy Partners (TEP) brought together key experts to help answer these questions and more.

        MAP-21: What the New Transportation Law Means for Alternative Fuels and Vehicles.

        October 25, 2012

        Click here to replay the webinar:

        This webinar featured Program Managers from the U.S. Department of Transportation and focused on changes in the new law that impact alternative vehicles and how best to access resources under MAP-21.

        In July, Congress finally passed and President Obama signed legislation to reauthorize the nation’s federal surface transportation law. MAP-21, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (P.L. 112-141) is the first long-term highway authorization enacted since 2005 and provides more than $105 billion for surface transportation programs in fiscal years 2013 and 2014.

        Historically, the Department of Transportation has provided significant resources to support alternative vehicles through the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) Program, the Clean Fuels Grants for buses and several other programs. Under the new law, some programs have been enhanced, some have been eliminated, and new opportunities have been created.
