The Central Florida Clean Cities Coalition is sponsored by the US Department of Energy. We support sustainable transportation practices through efforts to advance deployment of alternative fuel technologies, mass transit projects, and fleet optimization measures throughout our coalition territory as well as with other Clean Cities Coalitions throughout Florida.
The Central Florida Clean Cities Coalition territory encompasses a ten-county area consisting of Brevard, Flagler, Indian River, Lake, Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola, Seminole, St. Lucie and Volusia Counties.
Through coalition activities we aim to improve air quality, increase U.S. national energy security, and promote economic opportunities throughout Florida. Central Florida Clean Cities provides a forum for members to leverage resources, develop joint projects, collaborate on public policy issues, and promote petroleum displacement and clean air technologies in Florida. Central Florida Clean Cities has experience in building and facilitating public/private stakeholder groups, conducting technical education and outreach initiatives, and managing alternative fuel deployment programs.
The Coalition is a non-profit corporation and administered by the Florida Solar Energy Center.
