History of Drive Clean Colorado:
Our journey began as the Denver Metro Clean Cities Coalition, one of the pioneering coalitions designated under the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program in 1993. Today, as Drive Clean Colorado, we continue to be at the forefront of promoting equitable clean transportation and efficient mobility choices to reduce greenhouse gases, ensuring cleaner and healthier air for all of Colorado.
Over the years, we’ve seen remarkable advancements in clean transportation technologies and practices, thanks to the collaborative efforts of stakeholders like you. This anniversary celebration is a testament to your partnership and support.
As one of 75 unique Clean Cities coalitions across the U.S., we are committed to fostering economic, environmental, and energy security locally while advancing affordable, domestic transportation fuels and fuel-saving technologies. Together, we are driving change and shaping a more sustainable future.
We invite you to join us for our Stakeholder Summit on October 9th at the Colorado Department of Transportation Headquarters in Denver.
This event will provide networking opportunities among key players in the clean transportation sector, unveil DCC’s new strategic plan, and present stakeholder awards in celebration of our 30th anniversary.
RSVP now to secure your spot. Let’s celebrate achievements, collaborate on new opportunities, and chart the course for the next 30 years of cleaner transportation in Colorado.
At Drive Clean Colorado, we are proud to be a part of the Clean Cities Coalition Network. “Clean Cities Thrives for 30 Years as Model for Collaborative Technology Deployment” a report by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, delves into our mission as a coalition and the collaborations that drive our success. As we embark on 30 years of advancing clean transportation, it is important to acknowledge the impact of our partnerships that make it all possible.
“Clean Cities has thrived for 30 years in part because it is so collaborative and leverages relationships among public, civic society, and private sector entities at the local, state, and national level,”
– Patricia Romero-Lankao, a senior research scientist and interdisciplinary sociologist at NREL who co-authored the report
