The Massachusetts Clean Cities Coalition (MCCC) is part of a nationwide partnership sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Clean Cities Program. Clean Cities aims to reduce petroleum consumption in the transportation sector and support development of infrastructure necessary to make alternative fuel vehicles a viable transportation option. In March 1994, Boston became the 7th U.S. city to be designated a Clean Cities Coalition. This Coalition expanded its mission in 1999 to become a statewide initiative under its present-day name, the Massachusetts Clean Cities Coalition (MCCC).

Who Can Join
Public-private partnerships developed through stakeholders are integral to the coalition's success. If you work in a business, institution, or government office that has an interest in alternative transportation/fuels, energy, and the environment, you can join the Massachusetts Clean Cities Coalition as a stakeholder and help grow the AFV market. If your organization has a fleet, you can also learn how to reduce its carbon footprint.
Stakeholder Meetings & Upcoming Events
The Coalition hosts meetings for its stakeholders every other month. Anyone who is not a stakeholder but is interested in alternative transportation and fuels may also attend. Meetings feature current information and updates on the market. Past topics include electric vehicle infrastructure, compressed natural gas use in transportation, and hybrid technology. We meet every other month, on the second Thursday of that month, in various locations throughout the state. Come to a meeting and find out what the coalition is all about and join our mailing list to receive our monthly newsletters to stay on top of all that’s developing within the Clean Cities Coalition.
