EPAct Alternative Compliance Proposal for Fleets

July 05, 2006

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Department of Energy (DOE) has published a proposed rule to implement section 514 of the Energy Policy Act (EPAct) of 1992, as amended by section 703 of the EPAct of 2005, which allows states and alternative-fuel providers to meet a petroleum reduction requirement in lieu of acquiring alternative-fueled vehicles (AFVs) as mandated by EPAct 1992, according to the National Association of Fleet Administrators (NAFA). The new law allows a state entity or alternative-fuel provider to request a waiver showing that in lieu of complying with the applicable AFV acquisition requirement for a model year, it will take other actions to reduce its annual petroleum motor fuel consumption by an amount equal to 100-percent alternative-fuel use in all of the fleet’s AFVs, including AFVs that the state entity or alternative-fuel provider would have been required to acquire if there was no waiver. The DOE will host a public workshop for interested fleets on Jul. 12 in Washington, D.C. A copy of the proposed rule is available at: For additional information, contact NAFA’s U.S. Legislative Counsel Pat O’Connor at (202) 223-6222.
