The Coalition is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Vehicle Technologies Program and is charged with building partnerships to reduce petroleum use in Delaware’s transportation sector.  It is part of a national network of clean cities coalitions.

The coalition is made up of over 40 stakeholders from state and local governments, Delaware businesses, fuel suppliers, vehicle retailers, fleet owners, non-profit organizations, and other interested parties. It provides tools and resources for voluntary, community-centered programs to meet its goals.

Coalition Goals

  • Reduce our dependence on petroleum
  • Familiarize fleet managers with the benefits of additional alternative fueled vehicles to their fleets
  • Serve as a knowledgeable resource for transportation topics, including new technologies and relevant incentives and grants
  • Improve Delaware’s air quality
  • Build partnerships between stakeholders
  • Increase domestic energy security

What are Alternative Fuels?

Alternative fuels are substitutes for gasoline or diesel that are used to produce power. Alternative fuels include electric, propane, natural gas, hydrogen, biodiesel, and ethanol. Alternative Fuel Vehicles (AFVs), which use one of the aforementioned fuels, are becoming increasingly popular. As the technologies for Alternative Fuel Vehicles have improved, costs of AFVs have come down. And AFV owners save more when oil prices increase.
