Presentation Transcript

  1. Transportation & Sustainability:Options & Opportunity Anne Tazewell NC Solar Center / NC State University 919-513-7831

  2. Presentation Outline • The Clean Fuel Advanced Technology Project • The Importance of Clean Transportation • Green Driving / Fleet Practices • Alternative Fuels Overview

  3. Reducing transportation related emissions through: Education, Outreach, Recognition Expansion of alternative fuel infrastructure & vehicles Statewide partnership Sponsored by NCDOT with federal CMAQ funding Clean Fuel Advanced Technology 2013-2015

  4. Section 1 NC Air Quality & Health

  5. North Carolina Air Quality 24 counties do not meet national air quality standards for ozone.

  6. 42% of the nation lives where pollution levels are dangerous Health Impacts of Vehicle Emissions

  7. Health Impacts of Vehicle Emissions

  8. CO2 and Climate Change Indicates anomalies by comparing recorded annual temp. values against a long-term avg. Greenhouse Effect: increased levels of CO2 in the atmosphere trap solar radiation….the earth warms...

  9. Section 2 National Trends in Fuel and Vehicles

  10. Demand • Growing and industrializing world Petroleum Economics • Supply • Exists, but harder to get • Many nations historically unfriendly to US Average US household spent $3,000 annually on gasoline in 2010 Economics & Statistic Administration U.S. Dept of Commerce

  11. Emission Standards: Cleaner Vehicles

  12. Fuel economy standard for passenger vehicles from MY1978-2025

  13. Heavy Duty Emissions • Late 2006 - All diesel is Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel • 2007-2010 “Clean” Engine phase-in, heavy duty trucks • Lowered NOx 96% & PM 90% compared to 1994 • Increased cost of conventional vehicles

  14. Alternative Fuel Requirements 1992 Federal Energy Policy Act 2004-2005 North Carolina budget provision 19.5 2009 Executive Order 13514 2007 U.S. Energy Independence & Security Act (EISA) Renewable Fuels Standard Biofuel provisions

  15. Section 3 NC Economic Development

  16. Clean Transportation & NC Economy

  17. Section 4 Clean Transportation Solutions - Overview

  18. Clean Transportation Solutions There is no silver bullet! • Efficiency • VMT Reduction Programs • Idle Reduction • Alternative fuels • Advanced technology vehicles

  19. Efficiency Get more out of what you use: Eco Driving Proper vehicle maintenance (proper tune-ups, filter changes, engine lubes, tire inflation) Lower speeds and slower accelerations Using overdrive gears and cruise control Removing excess weight “Right size” vehicle for the job and when purchasing get most fuel-efficient/least emissions vehicle Eliminate unnecessary idling For every 5 mph over 60, your fuel efficiency decreases by 7%

  20. VMT Reduction Programs Reduce Use: Combine or avoid trips through phone and video conferencing Carpool Adjust routes Use public transit, walk, bike

  21. Laws and Fines

  22. Idle Reduction • Idling is Expensive • $20 billion per year in US • Idling is often restricted • Idling Pollutes • Idle reduction can be • cheap and quick

  23. Idle Reduction TechnologiesLight Duty and Heavy-Duty Vehicles

  24. Section 6 Clean Transportation Technologies

  25. Section 6A Clean Transportation Technologies Fuels

  26. Natural Gas Decreased emissions of NOx Reduced fuel costs Low carbon density Excellent choice for: Refuse Transit Delivery High mileage fleet applications

  27. Propane Decreased emissions of NOx Lower cost fuel, fueling and conversion No loss of performance Excellent choice for: First responders Para-transit

  28. CNG and LPG Considerations Reduced emissions Energy security Cost savings Established distribution network

  29. Biodiesel Decreased emissions Non-toxic and safe Often higher cost fuel No conversion required Excellent choice for: Existing vehicles Local economy

  30. Decreased emissions Can be low-cost Lower energy density No conversion required Excellent choice for: Existing vehicles Local economy E85 Air Quality Benefits: Criteria Pollutant Emissions Ethanol

  31. Ethanol: Food vs Fuel? Field corn, not sweet corn Field Corn is a raw material refined into: Starch Sweeteners Oil Meal Animal Feed Ethanol

  32. Cellulosic Ethanol KiOR – Columbus, MS POET – Emmetsburg, Iowa Alpha – Clinton, NC

  33. Section 6B Clean Transportation Technologies Vehicles
