Clean Cities Coalitions: 2017 Activity Report

Research output: NRELTechnical Report


The U.S. Department of Energy's Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO) works with local Clean Cities coalitions across the country as part of its Technology Integration Program. These efforts help businesses and consumers make smarter/more-informed transportation energy choices that can save energy, lower costs, reduce reliance on imported oil, and reduce emissions. This report summarizes the success and impact of coalition activities based on data and information provided in their annual progress reports. A national network of nearly 100 Clean Cities coalitions, whose territory covers 80% of the U.S. population, brings together stakeholders in the public and private sectors to use alternative and renewable fuels, idle-reduction (IR) measures, fuel economy improvements, and new transportation technologies as they emerge. To ensure success, coalitions leverage a robust set of expert resources and tools provided by national laboratories and DOE. From technical assistance and handbooks to websites and targeted analysis, these resources contribute to every facet of coalition success. This strong national framework of resources, which facilitates consistent vision and informed coalitions, is a hallmark of the program.
