The most important part of any Clean Cities Coalition is the Coalition’s community stakeholders. Stakeholders can include — but are not limited to — municipalities, fleet owners, educational facilities, AFV equipment dealers, and even citizens with an interest in the goals of the Coalition. Stakeholder participation is essential to the success of a Clean Cities coalition.
There are no membership fees and no obligations to become a stakeholder. However, as a stakeholder, you commit to:
- Support the goals of the U.S. Department of Energy Clean Cities Program
- Working with other coalition stakeholders to promote the use of alternative fuel vehicles, increase vehicle mileage and reduce heavy duty vehicle idling
- Partner with other Clean Cities stakeholders to create gasoline or diesel reduction programs and/or air quality improvement programs.
In a nutshell, what we do is help decrease our dependence on imported oil and improve air quality. Capitol Clean Cities has assisted in projects for many of our stakeholders. Generally, we do outreach, host educational workshops, hold events, help obtain grants (some of which are only available to Clean Cities Stakeholders), and provide information on alternative fuels and vehicles.
Stakeholder participation is essential to the ongoing success of Capitol Clean Cities of Connecticut. Therefore, stakeholders are:
- Urged to attend regular meetings and participate in the steering committee and working groups.
- Encouraged to participate in events.
- Used as resources to generate positive, frequent media coverage.
- Used to develop a plan for accomplishing reasonable, well-supported goals.
- Established into task groups to split the workload, build support for goals, and facilitate progress.
- Partnered with air quality officials to create regional pollution-reduction plans that include the five technology areas, which helps give Clean Cities members access federal funding.
