Ocean State Clean Cities is one of nearly 100 local coalitions designated by the US Department of Energy to reduce the use of petroleum in the transportation sector. Each coalition is led by an on-the-ground Clean Cities coordinator, who cultivates grassroots projects and activities to capitalize on the unique opportunities in their communities. Ocean State Clean Cities Coalition is a group of stakeholders working together to promote alternative fuels, idle reduction, fuel economy, and emerging vehicle technologies. Ocean State Clean Cities is hosted at the URI Transportation Center. Wendy Lucht has been coordinating the Ocean State Clean Cities at the University of Rhode Island since 2008.
