  • Introduce yourselfToday I will tell you about several tools and resources available to you through the Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program. All these tools are free and available online at
  • (If have handout) Pictured is a sample of the handout you should have among your materials. It can also be accessed and printed online through the Clean Cities website.
  • We have nearly 70 dues paying members.We work to reduce petroleum usage in three ways: 1) Replace with alternative fuels and low-level blends, 2) Reduce by promoting energy efficiency in vehicles through advanced technologies and more fuel efficient vehicles, and 3) Eliminate through idle reduction, greater use of mass transit, trip elimination, and other congestion mitigation approaches.We are 1 of nearly 100 other Clean Cities coalitions across the US. As you can see from the graphic, we were designated for just the Southeast Area of Wisconsin. As of mid-May, we are now designated for the entire state.
  • 2012:Petroleum – enough to fill 7 olympic sized swimming poolsGHGs – enough to take 9,078 vehicles off the road
  • These websites provide comprehensive information on the Clean Cities program and its portfolio of technologies.The Clean Cities website contains information about the program, including its accomplishments, partnerships, and the local coalitions.The Alternative Fuels and Advanced Vehicles Data Center (AFDC) website houses an extensive collection of information, data, and tools related to all the technologies and fuels in the Clean Cities portfolio. is a partnership between the U.S. EPA and Department of Energy. It is the official U.S. government source for fuel economy information.
  • The alternative fueling station locator is great for evaluating your local fueling supply and need. If you are considering what your fueling needs are, this is a great tool to evaluate the local alternative fuel supply. It’s also a great tool to plan a travel route.As you can see in the picture, the search options are displayed on the left and results appear on the map to the right.The search options allow you to choose the fuel type, accepted payment options, charging level for electric, and you can set a limit to the search area (e.g. 5 miles from search area).Let’s go through an example.Click the picture (
  • The petroleum reduction planning tool allows fleets to create their own strategies for petroleum-use reduction. It allows you to set an annual petroleum-use reduction goal and includes the entire Clean Cities portfolio of fuels and technologies to help you meet these goals. Most importantly, it allows you to create multiple scenarios to discover which strategies will work best based upon your fleet data and future plans. It can be used to guide future fleet purchases and strategies. It can also be used when putting together applications for funding, as it can allow you to list total savings approximations. Let me show you an example.Click the picture (
  • The Incentives and Laws Search is a searchable database of federal and state incentives and laws related to alternative fuels and vehicles, air quality, fuel efficiency, and other transportation topics. This is a great way to browse all that is available to you and how to access these opportunities, both federal and state.The state information search is a way to obtain state-specific information about alternative fuels and advanced vehicles, including laws, incentives, fueling station locations, and Clean Cities locations.
  • website was specifically created for mobile use. It can be used with any smartphone.You can locate alternative fueling stations, look up MPG and carbon footprint information, compare fuel cost and emissions, and find truck stop electrification sites.It also allows you to access all the other pages on the Clean Cities website in a form more easily used on your phone.
  • Please let me know if you need more information about anything I discussed here today.Thank you and I invite any questions.
