Our Leadership Team
The Greater Indiana Clean Cities Coalition (Greater Indiana) was designated as a Clean Cities Coalition by the U.S. Department of Energy, August of 1999, covering 11 counties. Now serving two-thirds of Indiana’s public and private sector fleets, our mission is to be a resource for our member fleets in their deployment of alternative fuels and technologies. We will do this by hosting educational events that foster networking opportunities to facilitate partnerships between fleets and industry providers. By facilitating these partnerships and projects, the Greater Indiana Clean Cities will achieve their goal to reduce our nation’s dependence on foreign oil, while creating green jobs and improving air quality in Indiana. Our mission is to be a liaison between end-users of alternative fuels vehicle (AFVs) and all governmental and/or private entities to make the purchase and use of alternative fuels (biodiesel, compressed natural gas, electricity ethanol, propane, hybrids, NEVs and plug-in technologies) as seamless as conventional fuels (diesel or gasoline), reducing our nation’s dependence on foreign oil while also reducing tailpipe emissions, enhances the environment and overall health and well being for everyone. By becoming a member of Greater Indiana, Inc. you will become a stakeholder in one of the Top Ten Clean Cities Coalitions in the country and the 2006 DOE Clean Cities Coalition of the Year. Your membership will give you access to a one-stop-shop location for answers and information to any of your alternative fuel, fuel blends, idle reduction and emission after-treatment questions. You will network with stakeholders who hold similar alternative fuel interests, learning from each other through your individual experiences. Greater Indiana, Inc. is a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit corporation. Every year, Greater Indiana hosts various training sessions for members and interested parties.
These training and information sessions include, but are not limited to, annual stakeholder meetings, talks by industry experts on the latest in alternative fuel and vehicle technologies, emissions in our area,[/one_half]as well as testimonials from local fleet owners and their success stories with various fuels and vehicle technologies. Also, throughout the year, training will be held for fleet managers and their maintenance staffs on the latest alternative fuels and alternative vehicle technologies.
However, one of the most important benefits of becoming a member of GICCC, Inc., is that, throughout the year, the Department of Energy and various other organizations announce funding opportunities for a multitude of alternative fuel uses, such as, vehicle purchases, infrastructure installation, fuel purchasing, research requests and much more. As a member of Greater Indiana, you will receive notification when these opportunities are announced and, if interested, assistance in preparing the grant application. Since 2002, Greater Indiana has assisted stakeholders in obtaining over $20,000,000 in project funding.
