Clean Cities – Ann Arbor

With more than 7,000 clean fuel vehicles in Washtenaw County, the Ann Arbor Clean Cities Coalition is educating the community about the latest ecological options in transportation today. In 2012 alone, the Ann Arbor Clean Cities Coalition displaced more than 2.8 million gallons of petroleum.

The Clean Cities program has increased the level of alternative fuel use in Washtenaw County dramatically. Recently, the Coalition has helped bring hydraulic launch-assist technology to Ann Arbor’s refuse trucks and hybrid engines to a significant portion of the University of Michigan fleet.

U.S. DOE Program Overview

Clean Cities strives to advance the nation’s economic, environmental and energy security by supporting local decisions to adopt practices that contribute to the reduction of petroleum consumption. Clean Cities has a network of nearly 100 volunteer coalitions, which develop partnerships in the public and private sectors to promote alternative and renewable fuels, fuel economy measures, idle-reduction technologies and new technologies as they emerge. In the past 15 years, Clean Cities coalitions and stakeholders have displaced more than 2.4 billion gallons of petroleum. In 2008 alone, roughly 412 million gallons of gasoline were displaced as the result of coalition activities.

Current Initiatives

Ann Arbor Clean Cities is working to prepare the community for the onset of electric vehicles by helping fund public charging infrastructure in the downtown area, and by bringing together local transportation professionals to create an electric vehicle preparedness plan, which will ensure we are ready to lead the transition when the time comes.
