Macomb Community College’s Center for Alternative Fuels provides students, workers and citizens, both within the private and public sector, the opportunity to obtain the latest applied knowledge, skill development, research, and training available in alternative fuels. It is a public center for education, exhibits, awareness of emerging issues, and provides a forum for debate by industry, scientific, and public leaders.
With more than 500,000 hybrid electric vehicles currently on American roads, there is clearly an unprecedented intersection of key factors - technology, economic pressures, public policy, and consumer preference - that is accelerating acceptance and advancement of alternative fuel vehicles.
Macomb Community College's longstanding, recognized expertise in providing automotive technology education, training public safety professionals, and offering relevant continuing education for individuals uniquely positions the Center for Alternative Fuels to help nurture a regional expertise in alternative fuels technology, which promises to continue to burgeon in importance while driving meaningful employment opportunities.
