Program 1

Program service accomplishments by the Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition (ACFC) during 2019 achieved the charitable purpose of the organization by lessening the burdens of government and improving the social welfare of communities in the area. During 2019, ACFC continued the development and operation of the organization and it conducted the following activities:Alternative Fuel and Vehicle Usage and Infrastructure Projects (85%) - The organization continued its participation in the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Clean Cities Program as a designated Clean Cities Coalition. The program promotes the use of alternative fuels and advanced technology vehicles (AFV) to expand the market for alternative fuels, create job opportunities, improve air quality, and to reduce dependence on foreign sources of energy. During 2019, ACFC and its members worked primarily with state and local governments to provide them with information on the benefits of AFVs and to identify and implement AFV uses and alternative fuel infrastructure projects. The use of alternative fuels increased significantly in Alabama in 2019 and provided a reduction in the use of petroleum of more than 11.1 million gallons of gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE) and 57,179 tons of greenhouse gas emissions. This effort was lead primarily by state and local governments with assistance from the ACFC. During 2019, alternative fuels (E85 Ethanol, B20 Biodiesel, and Propane) continued to be included on the state fuel contract. In addition to being available to state agencies, these alternative fuels can be purchased by local governments on the state contract from approved vendors in all 67 counties in Alabama. Use of alternative fuels in the fleets of government agencies in Alabama continued to expand in 2019: the Alabama Department of Transportation used 114,744 gallons of B20 Biodiesel and 235,272 gallons of E85 Ethanol; the Alabama Department of Corrections used 75 gallons of Propane; the Alabama State Docks used 1,744 gallons of Propane; the Alabama State Motor Pool used 54,939 gallons of E85 Ethanol; the Marshall Space Flight Center used 34,849 gallons of E85 Ethanol; the City of Birmingham used 98,773 gallons of E85 Ethanol and 175 gallons of Propane; City of Birmingham Schools used 31,921 gallons of Propane; the Birmingham-Jefferson County Transit Authority (BJCTA) used 1,053,502 GGE of CNG; the ACFC developed public access CNG station at the BJCTA facility dispensed 86,273 GGE of CNG to the general public; Mobile County Schools used 289,551 gallons of Propane; the Lee County Sheriff's Office used 11 gallons of Propane; the Town of Gordo used 73,778 GGE of CNG; the City of Athens used 64,331 GGE of CNG; the City of Tuscaloosa and Tuscaloosa Transit used 17,969 gallons of Propane; Tuscaloosa City Schools used 451,194 gallons of Propane; the City of Alabaster used 3,300 gallons of Propane; Lawson State Community College used 50 GGE of CNG; the University of Alabama at Birmingham and the City of Montgomery operated electric vehicles in their fleet which reduced 35,839 GGE of petroleum; and waste vegetable oil to biodiesel initiatives continued at the City of Alabaster, the Alabama Institute for the Deaf and Blind and Alabama A&M University, where these programs produced more than 1,877 gallons of B100 Biodiesel. ACFC programs and activities laid the foundation for additional alternative fuel infrastructure projects increased the availability of cleaner burning fuels to the public in Alabama during calendar year 2019 and beyond. Increasing availability of these fuels will improve air quality. In addition, other potential projects were identified for future funding and/or technical assistance. These ACFC programs and activities serve to lessen the burdens of government. These ACFC activities also further a charitable purpose by improving the environment, which promotes social welfare.

During 2019 ACFC conducted a Propane Autogas Answers Workshop in Birmingham, an Odyssey Day Workshop in Birmingham and a National Drive Electric Week Event in Birmingham. Other outreach and educational efforts by ACFC during 2019 included numerous stakeholder meetings, staffing an alternative fuel informational booth at the Alabama League of Municipalities annual meeting, presentations to community organizations, and responding to numerous media and consumer inquires on alternative fuels. Many of these meetings and events generated media coverage which enabled the messaging reach to be expanded significantly. These outreach and educational activities reached more than 125,800 people. ACFC operates a hotline through its website to provide information on the benefits of AFV's and alternative fuels. During 2019 ACFC responded to numerous requests for information. Examples of typical requests are from individuals interested in clean fuel/AFV information and clean fuel station locations and requests from teachers for curriculum related information on AFV's and air quality. ACFC also helped to generate print and online newspaper articles across the state on various alternative fuel projects and activities. These ACFC activities further an educational purpose by disseminating information regarding risks posed by air pollution as well as information concerning clean fuel alternatives to fossil-burning vehicles.
