Greater Indiana Clean Cities advances alternative, domestic fueled transportation including energy efficient technologies across all sectors in Indiana. The standalone nonprofit 501(c)3 organization serves most of the state, 76 counties, working with public and private sector members. Designated as a Clean Cities Coalition by the U.S. Department of Energy in August of 1999, Greater Indiana is a resource for members integrating alternative fuels, technologies, and efficiency measures. Greater Indiana hosts educational and networking events fostering opportunities for partnerships between fleets and industry providers. By facilitating these partnerships and projects, Greater Indiana is fostering the economic, environmental, and energy security of the United States.

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 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, 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 staff 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.
