The Greater Indiana Clean Cities Coalition works with vehicle fleets, fuel providers, community leaders, and other stakeholders to save energy and promote the use of domestic fuels and advanced vehicle technologies in transportation.
Kerri Garvin is the Executive Director of Greater Indiana Clean Cities, a standalone nonprofit designated by the Department of Energy to serve public and private sector members in Indiana. Greater Indiana advances alternative, domestic fueled transportation including energy efficient technologies across all sectors in Indiana.
