Text Version: Michael Berube from the U.S. Department of Energy Announces Clean Cities 30th Anniversary

This is a text version of the video Michael Berube from the U.S. Department of Energy Announces Clean Cities 30th Anniversary.

Michael Berube: Clean Cities represents 75 different coalitions spread throughout the country that for 30 years now have been providing expert advice to fleets and local governments and customers. We are so proud that we are celebrating our 30th anniversary.

For those 30 years, Clean Cities has been a trusted partner at all levels of government, helping provide people with the best information and knowledge on the latest technologies in clean transportation. Well, 30 years later, technology has changed and evolved.

Right now Clean Cities are being called upon more than ever to help people understand and navigate the changing landscape of vehicle technology. Certainly electrification is entering every part of vehicle fleets. And fleet users and owners and operators are constantly asking what's next, how do I manage that, what's the right technology, how do I deal with electric vehicle charging, what's the role of hydrogen in the future, and what do I do with my current natural gas fleets and where is the future for that?

Clean Cities is going to use that knowledge that they've gained over the last 30 years and that experience, supported by the Department of Energy, to really rededicate themselves going forward for the next 30 years. To help provide all of you with the best insights, the best knowledge, the best capability of how to navigate this new future.

We all know that we need to decarbonize the transportation sector. It's the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions, and if we're going to achieve net zero emissions across the economy, transportation is going to have to be at the forefront of that change.

To do that, we're committed with the Clean Cities coalitions across the country to provide all of you with the best knowledge, the best data, the best information possible to help make the decisions for you and your fleets. Thank you for your support.
