In our newsletter last month, Greater Indiana mentioned how the use of alternative fuel vehicles have been shown to increase the reliability and response time during a natural disaster. A diverse fuel mix mitigates an area’s vulnerability to fuel shortages, which is why Clean Cities organizations are working with emergency managers and disaster preparedness groups to help incorporate these assets.
Many states are incorporating alternative fuels into their energy assurance strategies. These strategies help states protect and improve the resiliency of the energy sector, including electricity, oil, and natural gas infrastructure during a manmade or natural disaster.
If you are interested in discussing ways your locality can integrate alternative fuels into emergency planning, please contact Greater Indiana for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org
