Rural Open Access Development Mobility Access Plan (ROADMAP) is a three-year initiative funded by the Department of Energy. This project aims to pilot and study advanced vehicle technologies in a rural setting to gather information and enhance awareness of innovative mobility solutions that fill rural transportation gaps. This project will combine rural mobility access with alternative fuel technology, advancing research and development in the clean transportation sector.
Additionally, the ROADMAP Initiative will work hand-in-hand with the Appalachian Clean Transportation (ACT) Initiative, a 2-year policy, and planning project focused on the growth of the clean transportation sector. Four regional conferences and policy development will be associated with this initiative.
