WNC Biofuels Education and Outreach Initiative

As part of a new regional project to fortify the biofuels sector in western North Carolina, Land-of-Sky Regional Council has been awarded $84,000 from the Biofuels Center of North Carolina to conduct a new biofuels education and outreach initiative to build market capacity, expand demand, and drive behavioral change in support of biofuels in western North Carolina. The initiative is a component of the “Planting the Seeds for a Robust WNC Biofuels Sector” project led by AdvantageWest, which is expected to result in increased biofuels production and utilization of as much as 5.2 million gallons per year by 2017.
Building on the infrastructure, resources, and best-practices of the EvolveEnergyP and the Land-of-Sky Clean Vehicles Coalition, the WNC Biofuels Education and Outreach Initiative will feature a series of workshops, forums, and individual fleet assessments designed to engage and inform high-volume, target consumers. These core activities will be complemented by traditional outreach mechanisms to reach a broader audience base including production of a short-video series, regional factsheets, documented success stories, radio interviews, press releases, and more. All Initiative content will be featured on a dedicated regional biofuels webpage under the EvolveEnergyP platform.

Other partners in the regional project include Appalachian State University Energy Center, Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College, Bent Creek Institute, Catawba County, Mountain Research Station, N.C. Dept. of Agriculture and Consumer Services, N.C. State University Mountain Horticultural Crops Research and Extension Center, Transylvania County and WNC Communities.
