Emerging Transportation Technologies

EEMS & CAVs have now been joined together under our 'Emerging Transportation Technologies' effort. These efforts, combined with others such as CONNECT Beyond recommendations and implementation, aim to improve transportation energy efficiency through low-cost, secure, and clean energy technologies. Through knowledge, tools, insights and technology solutions, emerging transportation technologies like EEMS can increase mobility energy productivity for individuals and businesses. Centralina has initiated several EEMS projects, most recently the Connected and Autonomous Vehicle Workshops and Taskforce, with a final product of a Road Map that will be updated in 2022; a pilot project to try out electric vehicle charging for multi-family dwellings on light poles; and work continues on the CONNECT Beyond regional mobility initiative to integrate service providers, territories, and technology to ensure a seamless trip around the region; among others. Page coming soon!

Fuel Efficiency

Are you a fleet manager looking for fuel conservation strategies; an educator looking for environment resources; or a business sustainability manager wanting to understand how idle reduction can benefit your organization? If so, Clean Cities has the resources for you. This page provides efficiency and cost-saving measures, such as fuel conservation actions, access to a "Toolkit for Idle Reduction Education and Outreach" on the Department of Energy’s Clean Cities website and more.

Electrification

Curious about what the greater Charlotte region is doing about electrification? Looking for guidance for your own municipality? For over ten years, Centralina has led alternative fuel corridor nominations, coordinated discussions between involved parties and facilitated the creation and continuation of Plug-In NC. CCFC has also been involved with the creation of the NC ZEV plan as well as the plan that federal NEVI funding requires. Centralina will be releasing more information for local and regional organizations on electrification here soon, so please check back frequently.
