MEEP is supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy. The project allows school districts to gain experience with electric school buses from multiple manufacturers, evaluate vehicle performance (including comparison to baseline conventional fuel buses), and provide valuable information about incorporating electric school bus technologies into their fleets.
Funded by the US Department of Energy, this $14.6 million project is designed to create a regional EV ecosystem in the District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. It will connect the Mid–Atlantic Region’s cities through EV infrastructure sub–projects including multimodal hubs such as airports, seaports, and logistics centers. It will also address educational, planning, and equity issues of populations near these hubs. The goal is to install approximately 200 EV charging units. It is a 3–year project through 2024.
GWRCCC is providing technical assistance to the Vehicle Charging Innovations for Multi-Unit Dwellings (V.C.I-M.U.D) project designed to implement cost-effective options for electric vehicle (EV) charging at multi-unit dwellings (M.U.D). V.C.I-M.U.D engages stakeholders across the country, determines barriers to MUD and curbside residential EV charging, educates stakeholders about charging technologies, and assists them with on-site installations. The project is also developing a comprehensive MUD Charging Toolkit for building managers/owners, residents, electric utilities, and local governments to better understand the opportunities and rewards of EV charging.
The Diesel Emissions Reduction Act (DERA) Program funds grants and rebates that protect human health and improve air quality by reducing harmful emissions from diesel engines.
GWRCCC’s DERA Program project will retire 4 municipal short–haul utility vehicles and 10 municipal off–road construction vehicles belonging to the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority (DC Water) and replace them with 12 vehicles operating full–time on biodiesel (B100). Implemented across 31 zip codes in Washington, DC, this project will reduce US dependence on imported petroleum, demonstrate cost–effective energy efficiency, and improve air quality in the District and greater Washington region.
