15 Coalition Vision: Where are We Headed?
Expand stakeholder base Federal, State and Transit fleets are underrepresented Work with National Partners Program Improve participation by fleets with increased LNG and LPG activities Improve participation by fleets and improve knowledge by the general public with increased E85, Biodiesel and PEV activities Implement the Greenwise renewable fuels goals Increased outreach and education through workshops and events, webinars and training

17 Increased Deployment of AFVs
Distribution of information regarding economic, emissions, energy security and climate change benefit of alternative fuels Support continued efforts of local and national fleet partners Work with dealerships to promote AFV loaner programs Use of webinars and to promote AFV voucher programs Encourage dealerships as members of the coalition and include AFV messaging in their advertisements Develop a regional AFV purchasing consortium with public and private agencies including a “total cost of ownership” financing component Create a major price/lease rate package with national fleet partners Seek grants for alt fuel vehicle purchasing discounts

20 Plug-in Electric Vehicle Support
Sacramento region is very active supporting the first wave of plug-in electric vehicles. Early launch market for both the Chevrolet Volt and Nissan Leaf U.S. DOE ARRA Plug-in Electric Vehicle OEM Demonstration Partner General Motors (12 Chevrolet Volts) Chrysler (15 Ram Pickup Trucks) General Motors/Ford/Daimler (Coulomb Charging Station Program) California Energy Commission Support Match funding for all ARRA Projects listed Additional funding for statewide charging station retrofit program with Clipper Creek Incorporated.

21 Regional PEV Readiness Efforts are Ongoing
Regional readiness efforts are being led by the Sacramento Area Council of Governments (SACOG) in partnership with GSRCAC, Sacramento Air Quality Management District, Sacramento Municipal Utility District and Valley Vision Three sources of funding to support the effort U.S. DOE Funding through South Coast AQMD and the California Plug-in Electric Vehicle Collaborative ($75K) California Energy Commission AB 118 ($200K) SMUD ARRA Grant with General Motors ($500K) Public Infrastructure Planning Regional Building Codes Harmonization and Streamlining Communication, Public Outreach & Development Best Practices Toolkits Emergency Responder Training

Values have increased from previous reports because the CEC data is much more inclusive **Total is greater than the sum of the categories as LPG vehicles and fuel economy improvements are not noted in this chart.

24 Coalition Sustainability: Funding
Activities to Increase Financial Sustainability Seek nominal participant fees for workshops and events Seek industry grants and event sponsorships for workshops and future interns/staff Seek grant opportunities and partnering opportunities with other agencies in exchange for services and events Implement a membership dues structure If Sacramento Clean Cities Coalition had more funding, : Hire a paid coordinator Hire paid support staff Provide increased management and technician training Implement improved outreach equipment such as a loaner computer, flat panel display, create marketing videos, acquire communications software (go to meeting, webcasting)

25 Coordinator and Support Volunteer Time Commitments
Current Staffing Coordinator currently works hours per week (in-kind) Co-coordinator currently works hours per week (in-kind) Interns and contract staff work hours/week (paid) Future Staffing Over the past 18 months, the work effort necessary to manage the Coalition has increased significantly due to the increasing requirements and accountability required by the DOE Within 3 years, the work necessary to operate the Coalition as currently projected could easily increase to 60 hours per week The Challenge In order to function at the level that we are projecting, we will need to identify funding streams or find a way to secure in-kind staff time from more organizations.

26 Coordinator Succession Plan
The Vice Chair currently fills in for the Chair in his absence and will continue to do so The Coalition by-laws provide for a process to fill vacant officer and director positions The coalition maintains hard copy and electronic files of all important coalition documents and correspondence in a central location (Secretary/Treasurer maintains files). Duplicate electronic files are maintained by the Chair and the Vice-Chair and all files are regularly backed up to storage devices Maintain a back-up electronic files of important documents

27 Coordinator Training Coordinator & Co-coordinator have both attended “Coordinator 101” Coordinator and Co-coordinator have both taken several Clean Cities University Online Learning System including: Clean Cities' e-Tools Coordinator Basics Laws and Regulations Vehicle and Fuel Technologies Coordinator or co-coordinator participate in monthly Western Region Clean Cities Coordinators calls

28 Coalition Challenges/Barriers to Success
Sacramento Clean Cities Coalition’s biggest challenges: Running our organization with all-volunteer management and student interns Budget constraints…economy (i.e. businesses and government agencies find it difficult to pay dues) Lack of secure funding sources Here are the steps we’re taking to address those challenges: Seeking further partnerships to leverage available funding opportunities Consider Pursuit of the “Coalition Mentoring Program” Here’s how DOE, its labs and contractors can help us succeed: Tools such as calculators (i.e. VICE model, Fleet Analytics, etc.), putting dollar value on carbon offsets, Online surveys Emissions Analysis Physically Locate the Western Regional Manager in the Western Region

29 In Summary Sacramento Clean Cities has provided significant support in petroleum-reduction efforts within our region through grants and enhanced education. Re-designation would allow for these efforts to continue and would allow for our future plans to be initiated.
