Deploying Alternative Fuels With or Without IncentivesThe webinar will focus on strategies and options for school transportation directors to adopt cleaner, cost-effective bus and other vehicle options with and/or without the assistance of incentive funding. The agenda will include an overview of a wide range of fuels and technologies, including those producing substantial gains in efficiency, along with propane, natural gas, biodiesel and plug-in electric. We will discuss how these various options may “pencil out” for schools without the aid of grants through innovative financing. We also will cover promising funding opportunities that may be available, including Volkswagen settlement dollars controlled by states, along with USEPA funding, Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality, and the types of programs that may be offered by your state. We’ll cover typical strategies to be the most competitive for these funding sources.
Speaker: Sam Spofforth, Executive Director for Clean Fuels Ohio
