MEC has partnered with fleets of all types to assist them in making the switch to cleaner, more efficient fueling. The cornerstone of our transportation programming lies in our Clean Cities partnership, which began 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.” The national program is comprised of a network of nearly 100 Clean Cities Coalitions across the U.S. MEC has the honor of housing both the Kansas City Regional and Central Kansas Clean Cities Coalitions.
Our Clean Cities Coalitions bring together stakeholders in both the public and private sector to promote cleaner fuels, fuel efficiency, and new transportation technology. We also 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.
