"Clean Cities has been a pleasure to work with because of the educational value it brings to fleets, whether in the municipal or private sectors. They give you knowledge and direction for your individual fleet and location for all the different alternative fuels and propulsion for vehicles and equipment. Helping get grant money for your individual project, the director of each coalition is very knowledgeable about what is going on in your area and willing to help."

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, nearly 100 coalitions leverage these resources to create networks of local stakeholders that advance transportation projects.

Learn how coalitions are creating significant and lasting change in communities large and small, one project, one local decision, and one fleet at a time.

National Network

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

Local Coalitions

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.

Making an Impact

Close to 270 million people (83% 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 13,000 stakeholders participate in Clean Cities coalitions, and through their collective efforts they are transforming local and regional transportation markets.

Decades of Experience Driving Transportation Forward

Clean Cities - U.S. Department of Energy - 25th Anniversary - Since 1993

After a quarter century, the mission of the Clean Cities coalitions is as relevant as ever. Coalitions are leaders in connecting fleets with the information, tools, contacts, and technical expertise they need to understand what alternative fuel vehicles, fueling infrastructure, new mobility solutions, and transportation technologies may be right for them.
