As part of our commitment to reducing petroleum usage in San Francisco, the Coalition offers a wide variety of resources, workshops, and meetings on a range of clean transportation topics; such as battery electric vehicles, hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles, and renewable diesel.
About Our Coalition
Founded in 1993 the Clean Cities Coalition is a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) nationally coordinated and locally focused environmental initiative to encourage local decision-making to reduce petroleum consumption and promote alternative transportation. The main goal of the Clean Cities Coalition is to reduce petroleum consumption in the United States by 2.5 billion gallons each year until the year 2020.
Throughout the United States, more than 8,400 stakeholders participate with 100 Clean Cities Coalitions, which includes the Bay Area (East Bay, San Jose and San Francisco). In San Francisco our dynamic group of Clean Cities Coalition stakeholders represent dedicated businesses, local government agencies, community-based organizations, as well as state and federal agencies contributing to the reduction of petroleum consumption in San Francisco.
With our stakeholders, the San Francisco Clean Cities Coalition builds partnerships to adopt petroleum reducing programs, which:
- Develop and use alternative and renewable fuels
- Implement idle-reduction measures
- Promote improved fuel economy
- Encourage the development and use of new clean technologies
The San Francisco Clean Cities Coalition makes an important contribution to the overall reduction in petroleum consumption in the United States. San Francisco is committed to using more zero-emission vehicles, producing clean fuels, and improving transportation options.
