About Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition
Who We Are!
Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition (ACFC) serves as the principal coordinating point for clean, alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicle activities in Alabama.
The Clean Cities program was established in 1993 by the U.S. Department of Energy to facilitate voluntary public/private partnerships around the country to create viable markets for clean, alternative fuel vehicles.
ACFC was incorporated in 2002 as an Alabama 501c3 non-profit. We received our designation as a designated Clean Cities coalition in 2009 and was re-designated in 2014.
Today a national network of nearly 100 Clean Cities coalitions brings together stakeholders in the public and private sectors to deploy alternative and renewable fuels, idle-reduction measures, fuel economy improvements, and emerging transportation technologies.
National Clean Cities Facts
Since its inception in 1993, Clean Cities and its stakeholders have displaced more than 2 billion gallons of petroleum. The goal of Clean cities is to expand and stimulate alternative fuel and advanced technology markets to reduce petroleum consumption by 2.5 billion gallons by 2020. Clean Cities is focusing on three primary methods to achieve this goal: Replacement, Reduction and Elimination.
Coalitions and their stakeholders promote and support state and local policies to advance the goal of energy independence, such as tax incentives for deployment of various alternative fuels and acquisition of more fuel-efficient vehicles, research and development efforts related to advanced vehicle technologies, and biofuels production. These and other community and state incentives and policies will help encourage petroleum alternatives and will improve the energy security of alabama and the united States.
We are facing a critical time in our nation's history. The transition to a sustainable portfolio of energy options enables us to create new American jobs, improve air quality, and is a critical step in restoring our prosperity and addressing longer term security and environmental concerns.
