NASEO, in coordination with the U.S. Department of Energy's Clean Cities Program, has released a Request for Applications (RFA) for State Energy Offices who are interested in integrating alternative fuel vehicles into the state's emergency planning process. Applications are due on Monday, January 14, 2019.
This project will build on the Initiative for Resiliency in Energy through Vehicles (iREV), a nation-wide project designed to help jurisdictions assess the potential use of alternative fuel vehicles in emergencies. Under iREV, pilots were conducted in Tennessee and Lancaster County, PA, through partnerships with their State Energy Office, Clean Cities Coalition, and Emergency Management Agency. NASEO is now seeking applications from similar teams in one or more states. Successful applicants will work with NASEO to develop an 'iREV Policy and Planning Review (iREV PPR),' detailing how to best leverage alternative fuels and vehicles to enhance emergency planning.
