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. West Michigan Clean Cities is currently seeking official Clean Cities designation from the U.S. Department of Energy.
