State Fleet Biofuels Use and Fuel Efficiency

Archived: 06/01/2012

As part of the Green Government Initiative, the Iowa Office of Energy Independence (OEI), Department of Administrative Services, Department of Natural Resources, and Department of Transportation lead a Biofuels Task Force. This group focuses on issues including increasing each state agency's use of biofuels to the maximum amount feasible and increasing the fuel efficiency of the state's vehicle fleet. The Biofuels Task Force sets specific five- and ten-year targets related to these areas, which are included in the Green Government Master Plan. Progress toward these goals will be tracked using a reporting system developed under the Green Government Initiative, and resulting data will be made public via the OEI whenever possible.
