Greetings!

It is hard to believe that we are in the holiday season already! I hope all of you can take time to spend with family and friends as we wind down the year.

Earlier this month, the latest round of real-world deployments within the Michigan Mobility Funding Platform was announced. The NextEnergy team is excited to partner with the following organizations on exciting projects:

  • Evenergi is working to transition internal combustion engine school bus fleets to zero-emission vehicles with its BetterFleet program in Lansing and Grand Rapids
  • HiPer Fiber is manufacturing advanced steep fibers with the goal of helping maintain bridges and eliminating decaying infrastructure in St. Clair Township
  • Workhorse Group is helping to sustainably connect communities and demonstrate new commercial pathways for on-demand and last-mile drone deliveries in West Michigan

I am also pleased to share that the United States Department of Energy’s Clean Cities Network has formally approved the statewide designation for Michigan Clean Cities. The Michigan Clean Cities team will now be providing their education, outreach, and fleet services across the state to help communities and fleet operators reduce emissions and achieve their climate goals!

If you missed the Michigan Sustainability Conference, check out MiNextCities program manager Kate Bell’s blog for highlights!

Stay tuned for updates on our work and activities via our website, social media platforms, and as always, please feel free to connect with our team.
