Cleaning the Air Throughout the Chicago Area

GTI staff took the lead in a major alternative fuels deployment project funded by DOE, working with the City of Chicago and the Chicago Area Clean Cities Coalition to add green vehicles to existing fleets in record numbers. Nineteen project partners joined the $40 million project which deployed 400 clean vehicles and 225 alternative fueling stations throughout the Chicago metro area. In addition, the project reduced CO2 emissions by 18,000 tons, saved 7.5 million gallons of gasoline, and provided $8 million in fuel savings.

GTI led another project funded by the DOE Clean Cities program, the Lake Michigan Corridor Alternative Fuel Implementation Initiative, which includes southeastern Wisconsin, greater Chicago and northern Indiana. The effort worked to help overcome market barriers to adoption of alternative fuel vehicles through training and education initiatives, policy change efforts, and market development.
