Alternative Fuel Transportation Program; Private and Local Government Fleet Determination
Document Number: E7-18153
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-09-14
Agency: Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Office
Pursuant to the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPAct 1992), the Department of Energy (DOE) proposes to determine that a regulatory requirement for the owners and operators of certain private and local government fleets to acquire alternative fueled vehicles (AFVs) is not necessary to achieve the recently modified EPAct 1992 Replacement Fuel Goal. DOE therefore also proposes to determine that it cannot issue a requirement for certain private and local government fleets to acquire alternative fueled vehicles.
