The cornerstone of MEC’s clean transportation programming lies in our Clean Cities Program, which was first started in 1996. Clean Cities is a federal Department of Energy program that “advances the nation’s economic, environmental, and energy security by supporting local actions to reduce petroleum use in transportation.” This national program is comprised of a network of over 100 Clean Cities Coalitions across the US, and MEC has the honor of housing both the Kansas City Regional and Central Kansas Clean Cities Coalitions.
Our Clean Cities Programming brings together stakeholders in both the public and private sector to promote clean fuels, fuel efficiency, and new transportation technology. Our Clean Cities programs keep a finger to the pulse of the alternative fuel industry, and its local events and resources. Join us in our efforts to reverse climate change, reduce air pollution, strengthen our local economy, and curb our dependence on petroleum.
