New National Clean Fleets Partners Join with Clean Cities to Reduce Petroleum Use

March 5, 2012

U.S. Secretary of Energy Dr. Steven Chu announced Monday the addition of four new companies to the National Clean Fleets Partnership: Best Buy, Johnson Controls Inc., Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E), and Veolia Environmental Services. The partnership, housed within DOE’s Clean Cities program, provides support to large private fleets seeking to reduce petroleum use through the deployment of alternative fuels, electric vehicles, fuel economy improvements, and other strategies.

President Obama first announced the National Clean Fleets Partnership in April 2011. Since that time, the number of companies in the partnership has tripled. The four new partners join 14 other private-sector leaders: AT&T, Coca-Cola, Enterprise Holdings, FedEx, Frito-Lay, GE, OSRAM SYLVANIA, PepsiCo, Ryder, Schwan’s Home Service, Staples, ThyssenKrupp Elevator, UPS, and Verizon. The 18 National Clean Fleets Partners are among the largest private fleets in the country, collectively operating well over 1 million vehicles nationally.

Dr. Chu made the announcement from Indianapolis, Indiana, at the Green Truck Summit, held in conjunction with NTEA’s The Work Truck Show. To find out more, visit the National Clean Fleets Partnership page.
