NASEO Releases RFA for Alternative Fuels and Emergency Planning

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.

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.

Please find the RFA here for full information on program details and application requirements. Responses must be submitted electronically to Dylan Tucker, NASEO Program Manager ([email protected]), no later than January 14, 2019. Please contact Mr. Tucker with any questions or clarifications.
