The Alternative Fuel Implementation Team (AFIT) project is a two-year initiative sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy to enhance implementation of alternative fuel in North Carolina and neighboring states.

The N.C. Clean Energy Technology Center’s Clean Transportation team is leading on the  project which includes several project partners:  North Carolina’s three Clean Cities and neighboring Clean Cities in East Tennessee, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina, and Virginia,   and Advanced Energy  Several industry partners are contributing  to the project including: The Biofuels Center of North Carolina, Duke Energy, Holmes Oil,  Piedmont Natural Gas, PSNC Energy and the State Energy Division\N.C.
