NJ Clean Cities Coalition Announces Two New Projects
We were recently notified of our selection for each of these projects following highly competitive proposal evaluation processes.
As part of a public private partnership with the US Environmental Protection Agency and multiple private parties, the NJCCC will be administering a program to replace old, inefficient and unregulated engines in a variety of marine vessels operating in NY Harbor with the latest technology new, fuel efficient and less polluting engines. This project is the third in a series of similar project partnerships between the EPA and NJCCC.
The NJCCC was also recently advised that its team has been selected by the US Department of Energy for a new nationwide project.Together with the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO) and others, the NJCCC will work to increase the awareness and use of alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) as part of emergency response planning and deployment. As a result of diesel and gasoline supply chain disruptions following Superstorm Sandy, AFVs have proven that they can play a major role in emergency preparedness and response. This program will serve to facilitate that by providing a variety of tools and education.
