Alliance AutoGas Recognized for Transportation Emission Reduction Efforts in North Carolina
Alliance AutoGas recently won the 2015 Mobile CARE Award from the North Caroline Clean Energy Technology Center.
Mike Phillips received the award on behalf of Alliance AutoGas from Nick Tennyson, NC DOT Chief Deputy Secretary. Businesses that support the expansion of advanced transportation technology, including producers, marketers, and distributors of alternative fuel vehicles, vehicle components, fuel and related refueling equipment, were eligible for this award. Others recognized at this event were: Gaston County, Orange County, Town of Knightdale, Raleigh, and The Produce Box, all of which are Alliance Autogas customers.
The 8th annual N.C. Mobile CARE (Clean Air Renewable Energy) awards conducted by the N.C. Clean Energy Technology Center (NCCETC) and N.C. Department of Transportation (DOT) to recognize outstanding transportation related air quality leadership were announced as part of the inaugural Southeast Alternative Fuel Conference & Expo held at the Raleigh Convention Center.
NCCETC and N.C. DOT recognized organizations and individuals across the state that are helping to lead the way to reduced transportation-related emissions and increased efficiency. This spring, the NCCETC announced the Smart Fleet Initiative, a new branch of the N.C. Mobile CARE recognition program exclusively focused on fleet commitment and accomplishments in reducing petroleum use, thus reducing CO2 emissions and other harmful emissions. North Carolina based fleets (both public and private sector) join N.C. Smart Fleet on 1 of 3 levels by completing an application. “In order to reduce emissions and enhance transportation efficiency, it’s essential to account for fuel use and undertake efforts to conserve and use more low carbon fuels. We are proud in our inaugural year to be recognizing 18 fleets for their initiatives in reducing fuel use and increasing fuel diversity,” said Anne Tazewell, transportation manager at NCCETC.
