Lake Michigan Corridor Alternative Fuel Implementation Initiative

The Lake Michigan Corridor Alternative Fuel Implementation Initiative is a two-year regional project designed to identify barriers in the implementation of CNG, propane, and electricity as vehicle fuels. The mission is to advance the energy, economic, and environmental security of the U.S. by supporting local actions to reduce petroleum use in transportation.

Project Objectives:

Target and remedy identified obstacles to clean vehicle adoption and use in a key regional area - Lake Michigan Corridor. This area includes 9.8 million people, 11 counties in EPA non-attainment and three Clean Cities coalitions with 500 member organizations. This project addresses four major initiatives: policies, barrier reduction, safety and training, and market development/outreach.

Gas Technology Institute, Chicago Area Clean Cities, South Shore Clean Cities & Wisconsin Clean Cities are providing research assistance and the development of outreach programs regarding:

  • Shared and/or public access at municipal alternative fuel stations
  • Inspection criteria for converted vehicles
  • Successes and the impact of alternative fuel vehicle programs
  • The generation of intelligent green purchasing policies
  • Weights and measures education & training
  • Potential mitigation strategies for local barriers
  • Educational material to fire marshals, code officials, first responders & automotive technicians
