"Clean Cities has been a pleasure to work with because of the educational value it brings to fleets, whether in municipal or private. 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 collation is very knowledgeable about what is going on in your area and willing to help."
City of Fort Wayne, Indiana
The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Clean Cities program advances the nation's economic, environmental, and energy security by supporting local actions to cut petroleum use in transportation.
At the national level, the program provides unbiased and objective resources and information to help transportation stakeholders evaluate options and achieve goals around alternative fuels, advanced vehicles, and other strategies to cut petroleum use. At the local level, nearly 100 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.
Clean Cities coalitions serve as the foundation of the Clean Cities program by working to cut petroleum use in communi¬ties 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.
