A National Network of Local Coalitions
Clean Cities coalitions support the nation's energy and economic security by building partnerships to advance affordable domestic transportation fuels, energy efficient mobility systems, and other fuel-saving technologies and practices.
At the national level, the U.S. Department of Energy's Vehicle Technologies Office provides unbiased and objective resources and information to help transportation stakeholders evaluate options and achieve goals around alternative fuels, advanced vehicles, mobility solutions, and other fuel-saving strategies. At the local level, more than 75 coalitions leverage these resources to create networks of local stakeholders that advance transportation projects.
Clean Cities collaborates with federal agencies, fuel providers, industry associations, equipment manufacturers, and large companies whose vehicle fleets operate in multiple states.
Coalitions serve as the foundation of Clean Cities by implementing transportation projects in communities across the country. These public-private partnerships are comprised 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 Clean Cities coalition contacts to learn more.

About 284 million people (86% of the total U.S. population) live inside the boundaries of Clean Cities coalitions. Clean Cities coalitions make an impact in their communities every day. Nationwide, nearly 20,000 stakeholders participate in Clean Cities coalitions, and through their collective efforts they are transforming local and regional transportation markets.
