Clean Cities and Communities coalitions work locally in urban, suburban, and rural communities to strengthen the nation's environment, energy security, and economic prosperity. Coalitions build partnerships to advance affordable, efficient, and clean transportation fuels and technologies.

At the national level, the U.S. Department of Energy's Vehicle Technologies Office and DOE national laboratories provide unbiased and objective technical assistance, information resources, online training, and an array of data and analysis tools. At the local level, coalition staff leverage these resources to provide expertise, resources, and tools to strategically advance clean transportation in the regions they serve.

National Network

Clean Cities and Communities collaborates with federal agencies, national laboratories, fuel providers, industry associations, equipment manufacturers, and large companies whose vehicle fleets operate in multiple states.

Local Coalitions

Coalitions designated by the U.S. Department of Energy serve as the foundation of Clean Cities and Communities by implementing transportation projects in communities across the country. Coalitions are composed of businesses, fuel providers, vehicle fleets, state and local government agencies, and community organizations.

These stakeholders share information and resources, inform public policy, educate the public, and collaborate on transportation projects. Connect with your local coalition contacts to learn more.

Making an Impact

About 300 million people (91% of the total U.S. population) live inside the boundaries of Clean Cities and Communities coalitions, which make an impact in their communities every day. Nationwide, nearly 20,000 stakeholders are part of Clean Cities and Communities coalitions, and through their collective efforts they are transforming local and regional transportation markets.
