Wondering how an electric box truck would work in your fleet? Participate in a University of Texas 2-month demonstraton project. Selected fleets will have the use of the truck (and if needed, level 2 charging), for 2 months. Lone Star Clean Fuels Alliance will determine if the fleet meets the minimum qualifications. For more information: contact email@example.com, by February 20, 2022.
Easy to complete: We’re eager to learn how many alt fuel vehicles you have, how many miles traveled, or gallons used. If you’ve added charging or fueling or are using fuel efficient technologies or idle reduction strategies, or have a plan to implement any of these, we want to know! Just by responding to our survey, you’ll be included in our 2023 Fleet Recognition Awards!
Texas pupils will be riding new ultralow emission natural gas and propane vehicles in 2023. With help from state and federal grants, the following Texas school districts will be reducing harmful emissions by replacing their old diesels with clean propane and natural gas buses: Alvin, Barbers Hill, Boerne, Dickinson, Hays, Houston, Humble, Pasadena, Port Isabel and Roby ISDs. Several more districts are on waitlists. These districts will be reducing their operating costs as well. Although fuel costs have moderated since last spring, propane and natural gas are still a bargain compared to diesel. Contact Heather Ball for information & assistance with alternative fuel grants such as the TCEQ's 2022 Clean Fleet Grant Program.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have just released the 2023 Fuel Economy Guide. The Guide provides detailed fuel economy estimates for model year 2023 light-duty vehicles, along with estimated annual fuel costs and other information for prospective car buyers.
TCEQ is now accepting applications under the Texas Natural Gas Vehicle Grant Program (TNGVGP).
The TNGVGP provides grants to encourage an entity that owns and operates a heavy-duty or medium-duty motor vehicle to repower the vehicle with a natural gas engine or replace the vehicle with a natural gas vehicle.
Applications will be accepted for consideration on a first-come, first-served basis and must be received by TCEQ no later than 5:00 p.m., Central Time on March 31, 2023.

The following grant notice of intent offers a number of possible project areas. These are typically competitive grants, with a significant cost share. Selected projects will provide DOE with data for the purpose of growing their knowledge base.
The DOE’s VTO has announced a notice of intent (NOI) to issue a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) entitled “Fiscal Year 2023 Vehicle Technologies Office Program Wide Funding Opportunity Announcement” (DE-FOA-0002893). The potential FOA will advance research, development, demonstration, and deployment in several areas critical to achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, including:
