2015 Annual Stakeholder Meeting Sponsorship Presentation

  2. 2. THANK YOU TO OUR EVENT SPONSORS! AmeriGas GROWMARK, Inc.
  3. 3. FORWARDING WISCONSIN’S FUEL CHOICE • $500,000 two-year program. • Designed to implement policy, barrier reduction, training, and educational initiatives to significantly expand the alternative fuels market in Wisconsin. • The program is a partnership between the Wisconsin State Energy Office, Wisconsin Clean Cities, and the Wisconsin State Technical College System.
  4. 4. WISCONSIN SMART FLEET PROGRAM BENEFITS Reduce Carbon Footprint • Learn how to reduce harmful emissions, increase energy security, and contribute toward a growing economy in Wisconsin. Meet Internal Economic Goals • Learn how to reduce dependence on petroleum-based fuels and ways to use alternative fuels and technologies. Smart Fleet Branding • Promotion and outreach are part of the program. It’s an opportunity for your company to showcase your fleet. Companies and governmental agencies talk a lot about being “green” or working towards “sustainability.” Whichever buzz word is applied means that, for most, the ultimate goals are to reduce their carbon footprint, leave the world a better place for the next generation, and meet their internal economic goals. To help fleets meet these goals, the Wisconsin State Energy Office (SEO) and Wisconsin Clean Cities (WCC) are setting out to provide fleets with a planning tool and outline the different options available for their specific situations. The SEO and WCC are calling it the Wisconsin Smart Fleet program. The Wisconsin Smart Fleet program is initially inducting fleets with three or more vehicles, and is funded through a two-year U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) grant called “Forwarding Wisconsin’s Fuel Choice.” After the granting period, the program will continue because the SEO and WCC firmly believe it can make a difference for fleets. The fleets are already implementing or will implement the use of alternative and renewable fuels, advanced vehicles, and other petroleum reduction measures.
  5. 5. • Two-year regional $700,000+ DOE grant funded project. • Designed to identify barriers in the implementation of CNG, propane, and electricity as vehicle fuels. • Regional Partnership with the Gas Technology Institute and the Lake Michigan Consortium (Wisconsin, Chicago, and Northern Indiana- South Shore Clean Cities Coalitions). LAKE MICHIGAN CORRIDOR INITIATIVE

PLUG-IN ELECTRIC VEHICLE TASK FORCE • The Task Force is a diverse group of 33 stakeholders that are excited about PEVs with goals to grow the PEV market, educate all audiences about PEVs, and provide comprehensive resources about PEVs to residents in WI. • To meet these goals, Task Force members work diligently to: • Create solutions to barriers; • Participate and promote related events or activities, put together educational and marketing materials; • Work closely with municipalities and private companies to promote PEV related policies and practices; • Seek funding to implement their solutions; and • Recruit companies throughout WI to join the U.S. DOE Workplace Charging Program.

  14. 14. U.S. EPA SMARTWAY PROGRAM • Launched in 2004 by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) • Public-Private Initiative between EPA, large and small trucking companies, rail carriers, logistics companies, commercial manufacturers, retailers, and other federal and state agencies. • WCC supports SmartWay's efforts by promoting idle reduction and fuel efficiency methods and technologies. • WCC has several members that have benefited from participation in the SmartWay program: – Convenience Transportation (Kwik Trip) – Contract Transport Services – Paper Transport – Skinner Transfer Corporation – Sheehy Mail Contractors – Time Transport – Veriha Trucking
  15. 15.
