Projects 2020


Drive Electric Pennsylvania is part of Drive Electric USA, a Department of Energy-funded project comprised of Clean Cities Coalitions, electric vehicle groups, and other committed partners from fourteen states. This project engages individuals, utilities, legislators, dealerships and others towards removing adoption barriers and accelerating plug-in electric vehicle use throughout the United States. PRCC is one of 17 Clean Cities Coalitions participating in this project.

FHWA – I-80

The I-80 Mid-America Alternative Fuel Corridor project was developed to help address and recognize potential alternative fueling opportunities along the Interstate 80 (I-80) from New Jersey to Iowa. The six-state collaborative, including: Illinois; Indiana; Iowa; New Jersey; Ohio and Pennsylvania seek to have all the necessary component infrastructure to make this interstate alternative fuel “ready” for Compressed Natural Gas(CNG) and electric vehicle (EV’s) travel. The proposed alternative fuel corridor was organized by Argonne National Laboratory and submitted to the FHWA by the Illinois Department of Transportation. PRCC is part of this award through the PA Department of Transportation.

VoiCE-MR: Vocation Integrated Cost Estimation for Maintenance and Repair of Alternative Fuel Vehicles (AFV) – PRCC and its stakeholders will participate with West Virginia University jointly propose a study to develop a tool to estimate the vocation dependent variations in maintenance cost (MC) of heavy- and medium-duty vehicles fueled by alternative fuels that include natural gas, propane, and electric.
