The Clean Cities program is a U.S. Department of Energy initiative that originated as a result of the Energy Policy Act (EPACT) in 1992. The Act requires federal government, state government and alternative fuel supplier fleets to include AFVs in their purchases of new light-duty vehicles. The US Department of Energy (DOE) does not mandate AFV purchases for local government and private fleets.
Today, more than 10,400 Clean Cities stakeholders nationwide work together to advance our environmental, energy and economic security through their work with local Clean Cities Coalitions. The strength of Clean Cities comes in part from the diversity of its stakeholders. It’s not often that you get representatives from public utilities, local, state, and federal agencies, commercial fleets, auto manufacturers, public health departments and transit agencies as well as fuel and equipment suppliers and nonprofit associations together at the same table, but that’s what you can expect from Clean Cities.
Clean Cities cultivates a community of learning where stakeholders become part of an advanced transportation network in which people learn about alternative fuel options and technologies, discover ways to reduce fleet and fuel costs, establish idle reduction policies, collaborate on public policy issues, and promote clean air technologies.
