Let Us Help You! Tiger Teams Brings Technical Assistance for Fleets

    Clean Cities Technical Assistance (Tiger Teams)

    Clean Cities coordinators can assist fleets through the Clean Cities Technical Assistance Project, also known as Tiger Teams.  This program can help fleets, fuel providers, and equipment manufacturers overcome obstacles for deploying alternative fuels and advanced vehicles.  In other words, we can help you make informed choices to reduce your petroleum consumption!

    Projects Eligible for Assistance

    Clean Cities will consider technical-assistance requests for the following types of projects:

    • Technical Problem SolvingVehicle Operations: Issues can pertain to vehicle performance, drivability, safety, maintenance, driver acceptance, training, or best practices for implementation of alternative fuel vehicles at specific sites.
    • Technical Problem Solving – Infrastructure Operations: Issues can pertain to fueling station design, siting, interaction with alternative fuel providers or fire safety code officials, fueling station performance, maintenance requirements, or user and operator training.
    • Evaluation of Project Potential: Some projects (including transit systems and airports) may qualify for technical assistance if expertise is not available from local or regional resources or stakeholders. When there is demonstrated local interest, a Tiger Teams expert can evaluate local market conditions, conduct infrastructure assessments, gauge stakeholder needs, and assist in defining project execution feasibility.

    Applying for Assistance

    To qualify for technical assistance, applicants must demonstrate they have made efforts to solve their problems using their own resources. Applicants can request technical assistance by submitting their contact information and details about the project to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. To start the process for assistance, call Louisiana Clean Fuels to get the ball rolling!
