Greenspot Smart Mobility Offering Free Charging During COVID-19 Pandemic

As an organization based in the New York City area, Greenspot has seen communities hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.

But please, stay home, stay safe, and help flatten the curve.” While this plan was originally in place until mid-April, the Greenspot team has confirmed that they will continue to offer free charging until the COVID-19 si

Next Round of VW Settlement Delayed

Clean Fuels Ohio announced today that the next round of the Volkswagen settlement that was set to be released in June will be delayed as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. A timetable for the new release date is yet to be determined. Except for specific programs, all state spending and new hiring has been put on hold. During this time, the top priorities of Governor Dewine’s administration focus on controlling the spread of the virus while addressing the immediate economic impacts of a shelter in place order on many Ohioans. Additionally, as the VW settlement is part of a legal settlement and funds can only be used for specific purposes, the money will not be spent outside of vehicle project

COVID-19 Response from CFO

As the COVID-19 situation progresses and the future seems more and more uncertain, Clean Fuels Ohio aims to maintain utmost transparency with our members and stakeholders. For the past month and half, we have taken pointers from the CDC and Governor DeWine’s administration to make the most responsible decisions we can in a time like this. We will continue to do so by practicing social distancing and going completely remote with our operations. This is to say, Clean Fuels Ohio is operating at full capacity from the comfort of our homes and is continuing with business as usual on all pending and future projects. While we are fortunate that we are able to continue business as usual, we understa

Policy Support From The Success Group

Since the start of the COVID-19 crisis, we have been actively engaging lawmakers and public officials to provide quick responses to constituent concerns and industry opinions on the topics being discussed each day.

This will require active engagement from advocates to overcome the negative impacts of the COVID-19 crisis. We are starting to see this approach in the form of stu

An Update on Our DOE-Funded Projects
