Creating a Sustainable Alternative Fuel Corridor

In the Michigan to Montana (M2M) Corridor project along I-94, GTI Energy built community-based partnerships and provided leadership to create a successful and sustainable alternative fuel corridor for clean vehicles.

With a nearly $5 million award from DOE and $5 million in partner support, GTI Energy led a project team comprised of alternative fueling infrastructure/ transportation deployment partners and Clean Cities Coalitions from states along I-94.

Over more than five years, this team successfully collaborated to accelerate the adoption of alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs), and develop related fueling infrastructure needed to support those vehicles along
I-94. The project was completed at the end of 2022.

Project accomplishments and corridor impacts include:

  • 16 public alternative fueling stations deployed– 13 DCFC, two CNG, and one propane. Project data showed the stations dispensed 421,524 Gasoline Gallon Equivalent (GGE) of fuel during project.
  • 40 alternative fuel vehicles deployed. Project data documented 15,924,054 miles driven and 2,867,199 GGEs displaced.
  • Using the AFLEET model developed by Argonne National Laboratory, it is estimated that the project generated the following annual environmental benefits:
    • GHG reductions = 14,079 tons
      Equivalent to removing 2,752 cars from the road (U.S. EPA calculator)
    • NOx reductions = 47,537 lbs
    • Petroleum reductions = 33,398 barrels of oil
