Under the National Clean Fleets Partnership, first announced by President Obama last April, DoE experts provide each company with specialized resources, technical expertise, and support in developing a comprehensive strategy to reduce fuel use and achieve greater efficiency and cost-savings. The Department also helps connect partners with clean fuel providers and equipment manufacturers where their fleets operate.
Among the new partners announced today, the Solid Waste division of Veolia Environmental Services is dedicated to reducing petroleum use and emissions through route optimization, alternative fuels, and hybridization. As of 2012, it operates four CNG fueling stations and more than 100 CNG refuse-collection and support vehicles.
Furthermore, Johnson Controls’ strategies include the use of compressed natural gas vans. The company aims to deliver increasingly sustainable products, services and solutions that will help its customers improve their energy efficiency, reduce their carbon footprint, and achieve their environmental goals.
