6 Clean Cities / 6 The U.S. Department of Energy's Clean Cities program advances the nation's economic, environmental, and energy security by supporting local actions to cut petroleum use in transportation. A national network of 89 Clean Cities coalitions brings together stakeholders in the public and private sectors to deploy: –Alternative and renewable fuels (biodiesel, electricity, ethanol, hydrogen, natural gas, propane) –Idle-reduction measures –Fuel economy improvements –Emerging transportation technologies. Clean Cities Mission

7 Clean Cities / 7 Clean Cities Strategies  Replace petroleum with alternative and renewable fuels  Reduce petroleum use through fuel efficiency measures, smarter driving practices, and idle reduction  Eliminate petroleum use by promoting mass transit, trip elimination, and congestion mitigation

LCF became a designated affiliate of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program in 2000. One of two Clean Cities Coalitions in Louisiana Since 2000, we have worked within the five-parish air quality non-attainment area to develop the infrastructure to support the adoption of clean fuel powered vehicles. In 2013, we expanded to 56 parishes. Louisiana Clean Fuels
