The Clean Cities Program is an initiative of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and focuses on strategies to reduce petroleum consumption in transportation. There are nearly 100 Clean Cities Coalitions across the country and Clean Cities–Georgia holds the distinction of being the first coalition. DOE officially designated the coalition in 1993.
Clean Cities–Georgia is the central coordinating point for alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) activities in the state of Georgia. Our shared mission with the national Clean Cities Program is to:
Advance the energy, economic, and environmental security of the United States by supporting local actions to reduce petroleum use in transportation.
- Replacement: Direct substitution of a petroleum product with an Alternative Fuel
- Reduction: Decrease petroleum use by promoting smarter driving habits, fuel-efficient vehicles, idle reduction, and advanced technologies
- Elimination: Severely reducing petroleum use by encouraging mass transit usage, trip elimination, and congestion mitigation
Clean Cities–Georgia’s partnerships with federal, state, and local agencies, utilities, public interest groups, and public and private fleets are focused on the deployment and use of:
- Alternative Fuels and Vehicles
- Hybrid Electric Vehicles
- Idle Reduction Technologies
- Fuel Economy Measures
- Fuel Blends
