The North Florida Clean Fuels Coalition is working to bring more viable alternative fuels and energy-efficient vehicles to our region.
This non-profit organization, staffed and supported by the North Florida TPO, serves Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, Putnam and St. Johns counties. The Coalition advocates using alternative fuels and advanced vehicle technologies to reduce petroleum consumption, improve air quality and develop regional economic opportunities.
The Coalition is “fuel neutral,” meaning that it doesn’t promote one type of alternative fuel over another. It recognizes that a variety of alternative fuels are required to meet the needs of consumers, businesses and government organizations.
In 2014, the Coalition developed stakeholder working groups representing biofuels (biodiesel and ethanol), electricity, hydrogen, natural gas and propane. These groups provided input in developing the Regional Alternative Fuels Master Plan. The Plan includes initial vehicle and fueling infrastructure investments for government truck fleets, buses, train locomotives, port vehicles and electric vehicle (EV) charging stations.
The Coalition has official designation from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities Program.
