The Alternative Fuels and Advanced Vehicles Data Center was developed in 1991 in response to the Alternative Motor Fuels Act of 1988 and the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. The site features a database with state and federal laws and incentives related to alternative fuels and vehicles, air quality, fuel efficiency, and other transportation-related topics.
Established in 1995, the Database of State Incentives for Renewable Energy (DSIRE) is an ongoing project of the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC), funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and managed by the North Carolina Solar Center. The organizationís mission is to accelerate the use of renewable energy sources and technologies in and through state and local government and community activities.
The community council of Jacksonville has been working on projects that improve the living conditions in older neighborhoods, improve race relations, and clean up the city for the super bowl and beyond.
