Who We Are
The PEV Readiness Project is brought to you by the Centralina Clean Fuels Coalition (CCFC) with the leadership of the Regional Electric Vehicle Advisory Committee (REVAC)
The Centralina Clean Fuels Coalition (CCFC), has been in existence in the Greater Charlotte Region for over 10 years and was designated in April of 2004 in the Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program. The Coalition is a local effort of the Centralina Council of Governments, a state designated regional planning agency in North Carolina comprised of Anson, Cabarrus, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Rowan, Stanly, and Union counties.
The Regional Electric Vehicle Advisory Committee (REVAC) has been invited by CCFC to inform the PEV Readiness Project goals and objectives.
U.S. Department of Energy Clean Cities Coalition The Clean Cities Program is a public-private partnership that brings together federal, state and local governments, the auto industry, private sector fleet operators, fuel providers and community leaders to help communities reduce dependence on foreign petroleum, expand the use of alternative fuels and advanced technologies, make their vehicle fleets more energy efficient.
Nearly 100 Clean Cities coalitions work across the country, led by Clean Cities coordinators, coalition stakeholders who come together to share information and resources, educate the public, help craft public policy, and collaborate on projects that reduce petroleum use.
The Clean Cities Program is both fuel and technology neutral and supports a broad portfolio of technologies, including alternative and renewable fuels, fuel economy measures, idle reduction technologies, and emerging technologies like electric vehicles. Since its inception in 1993, Clean Cities Coalitions and its stakeholders have saved nearly 3 billion gallons of conventional fuel (gas or diesel). .
More information is available on the national Clean Cities website.
While we’re excited that PEV technology is here for consumers and businesses, we will continue monitoring electric transportation stakeholders as they address
- Building-out of public recharging infrastructure
- Launching new and different sized vehicles at a variety of price-points
- Extending mileage range
- Improving battery technology, for lower costs, increased energy density, and extended durability
