Record-Setting Tennessee Gathering of Alternative Fuel Vehicles Held

 

The Tennessee Clean Fuels Coalition recognized six new fleets as being members of its Tennessee Green Fleets Certification Program during the group’s third annual Sustainable Transportation Awards and Forum recently in Nashville.

The East Tennessee chapter of the coalition operates under UT’s Institute for a Secure and Sustainable Environment in conjunction with the Tickle College of Engineering.

As part of the meeting, the group assembled the largest gathering of alternative fuel vehicles in Tennessee history for a public showcase outside Nissan Stadium, home of the Tennessee Titans.

The six fleets recognized—including the Knoxville Utilities Board, the City of Sevierville, and the Sevier County Utilities District—shared a reduction of 140,000 gallons of petroleum and prevented over 300 tons of carbon dioxide emissions through their use of alternative fuel vehicles.
