The Midwest Drives Initiative was a US Department of Energy funded program offering fleets free demonstrations of alternative fuel vehicles and efficiency technologies. Each demo was accompanied by data logging equipment, allowing the program to create data-driven case studies. These case studies will help fleet administrators decide whether vehicles will work for their operations.
Midwest Drives by the Numbers:
32,000 Miles Logged
1,700+ Gallons of Alternative Fuels Used
65+ Demonstrations Conducted
Dozens of Fleets Newly Committed to Deploying Alternative Fuels
... and the Data to Prove It
Midwest Drives was designed to share data and case studies openly to help inform others on opportunities for alternative fuel deployment. Below, you will find a variety of case studies and data generated throughout the duration of the program.
