A Michigan-based organization has been awarded a new project to help cut red tape and develop the infrastructure, training and regional planning to help meet demand for alternative fuel vehicles.
The U.S. Department of Energy announced Monday that the Clean Energy Coalition in Ann Arbor will handle the project. It is part of a broader $11 million federal investment that's aimed at expanding transportation options and improving the fuel efficiency of vehicles on the market.
The types of vehicles targeted by the effort include those that run on natural gas, electricity and propane.
The Clean Energy Coalition project will work to streamline codes and permits for alternative fuel vehicles as well as help public and private organizations evaluate vehicle options for their fleets.
