TVCCC 2015 annual report now available
Every year, each Clean Cities Coalition submits to the Department of Energy an annual report of its activities and accomplishments for the previous calendar year. Coalition coordinators, who lead the local coalitions, provide information and data via an online database managed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). The data characterize membership, funding, projects, and activities of the coalitions. The coordinators also submit data on the sales of alternative fuels, deployment of alternative fuel vehicles, and hybrid electric vehicles, idle-reduction initiatives, fuel economy activities and programs to reduce vehicle miles traveled. NREL and DOE analyze the data and translate them into petroleum-use and greenhouse gas reduction impacts for individual coalitions and the programs as a whole.
TVCCC offers travel/training assistance opportunities
Keeping on top of the latest technologies and advances in the use of alternative fuels can be difficult, especially with limited travel/training budgets. The Treasure Valley Clean Cities Coalition (TVCCC) wants to assist individuals, agencies, companies, etc. learn more about current trends and advances in alternative fuels and vehicles.
