2011 CLEAN CITIES GREATEST DISPLACEMENT OF PETROLEUM USING CNG – HONORABLE MENTION
We wanted to pass along the exciting news that the U.S. Department of Energy awarded GLICCC honorable mention for Greatest Displacement of Petroleum Using CNG. Out of the 90+ Clean Cities coalitions in the U.S., GLICCC had the third largest displacement of petroleum with CNG in 2011.
GLICCC came in 5th place nationally for overall fuel displacement.
An award such as this is recognition of the dedication and work of everyone involved in the coalition. We congratulate you on your commitment to alternative fuels and to reducing our nation’s dependence on foreign oil.

THE GLICCC/GNY EAA FORD GO FURTHER TOUR EVENT
The GLICCC / Greater New York EAA Ford Go Further Tour Event was a great success. More that 30 GLICCC stakeholders and EAA members were on hand to view and test drive Ford’s Focus Electric and a C-Max Hybrid. The C-Max Hybrid is available now on Long Island and the Focus Electric will be available in January. A C-Max Plug-In Hybrid should also be available early next year.
With the Ford Go Further Tour, Ford Motor Company has been perfecting electric vehicle technology for more than a decade. Today, Ford is creating the future of electric vehicles with its development of plug-in hybrid and all-electric vehicles. Be the first to experience the Focus Electric and C-MAX Hybrid, the new lineup of electric and hybrid vehicles from Ford.
Response to the event – and especially the cars! – was extremely positive. We hope to have more of these types of events in the future.

The Greater Long Island Clean Cities Coalition (GLICCC) hosted an alternative fuel vehicle conference entitled “Alternative Fuels Today–For a Greener Tomorrow. It was held at Carlyle on the Green. Keynote speaker was Peter Scully, Long Island regional director, NYS DEC (Dept of Environmental Conservation).
President Obama toured one of the Clean Cities ARRA awards project sites in Las Vegas today (SCAQMD’s LNG corridor with UPS) and also referenced our program’s National Clean Fuel Partnership. You can either watch the video link below or read the remarks if your video link loads slowly:
There was reference to the establishment of 5 Clean Corridors and a CNG vehicle design competition. There are not many details beyond that, but i’m sure we’ll hear more in the coming weeks. Also, below is a link with more info from the State of the Union on Energy Policy:
Once again Clean Cities and our industry partners are on the front lines of the national agenda. This year will be very busy with VIPs wanting to visit project sites across the country; they definitely seem to be interested in CNG and LNG. While they will probably concentrate on swing states, the potential exist for visits in our region too, so we ought to be ready.
