Greater Indiana Clean Cities, Inc. (Greater Indiana) is a standalone 501(c)3 nonprofit organization serving the state of Indiana to support alternative fuels and alternative fuel vehicles.
Our mission is to advance alternative, domestic fueled transportation, including energy-efficient technologies, across all sectors in Indiana.
We provide positive support for the industry, our members, partners, and the state to increase the adoption of alternative fuel transportation, benefiting the local economy. We foster a sense of community and encourage active participation in our mission, ensuring everyone has a role in building a sustainable future.
Working alongside our dedicated Board of Directors, our team aims to educate, inspire, and lead the way toward a sustainable future.
For 24 years, we have assisted public and private sector members, including cities, schools, utilities, fueling companies, government agencies, universities, and other nonprofit organizations, with alternative fuel projects. After an extensive review and strategic planning process conducted throughout 2019, Greater Indiana and our board of directors decided to transition the organization from a Department of Energy-funded program into a fully independent nonprofit entity. Our transition provided the freedom for us to embark on the requests and goals set by our valued stakeholders.
Today, Greater Indiana is an organization that prioritizes the needs of our members, and we are dedicated to fostering awareness and education about alternative fuels, including Natural Gas, Propane, Biodiesel, Ethanol, Hydrogen, and Electric. Our fuel-neutral approach allows us to assist stakeholders in finding the alternative fuel that best suits their unique requirements. Greater Indiana’s collaborative efforts encompass diverse projects, programs, and grant proposals, all aimed at advancing our mission of advancing the use of alternative fuels.
Our work is made possible by the involvement and collaboration of the following organizations:
