The Southeast Florida Clean Cities Coalition is one of 90 coalitions around the country that are part of the U.S. Department of Energy's strategy to reduce America's dependence on imported oil. The Clean Cities' collective goal, nationwide, is to reduce this country's import needs by one million barrels of oil per day by the year 2020.

The Clean Cities Program began in 1993 with the creation of the Southeast Florida Clean Cities Coalition by Executive Order of the Governor and our subsequent Clean Cities designation by the U.S. Department of Energy. The Southeast Florida Coast Clean Cities Coalition is a public/private advisory board composed of state legislators, local government representatives, federal and state agencies, and private sector representatives concerned with alternative fuel programs. The role of the Coalition is to provide a fuel neutral policy direction to maximize the use of vehicles operating on clean alternative fuels throughout the five county area. This area is composed of Broward, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe and Palm Beach counties.
