About Clean Cities

Clean Cities is a network of more than 80 volunteer, community-based coalitions, which develop public/private partnerships to work together as a coalition to

• Increase the use of alternative fuels and alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs)

• Expand the use of fuel blends (diesel/biodiesel, ethanol/gasoline, and compressed natural gas (CNG)/hydrogen)

• Promote informed consumer choice on fuel economy

• Increase the acquisition of hybrid vehicles by fleets and consumers

• Help to facilitate the transition of traditional lotteries to online lotteries to reduce paper waste

• Advance the use of idle reduction technologies in heavy-duty vehicles

• Develop partnerships, investigate opportunities for joint projects, leverage resources, and collaborate on public policy


Through these efforts the Clean Cities hopes to meet the program's goal of displacing 8 billion gallons of petroleum in the transportation sector by 2020.

As of April 2005, nationally Clean Cities’ 4,800 stakeholders operate thousands of AFVs that collectively displace approximately 180 million gallons of petroleum and lower emissions by 31,800 metric tons each year from the use alternative fuel vehicles.
