Clean Cities program hits milestone

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program and its nearly 100 coalitions across the nation reached a major petroleum-reduction milestone in 2013 — reducing 1 billion gallons of petroleum use in a single year.

This keeps the national Clean Cities program on track to meet its ambitious petroleum-reduction goal of 2.5 billion gallons a year by 2020.

The Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition coalition has facilitated public-private infrastructure projects across the state, and has promoted the use of alternative fuels and advanced technology vehicles.»
