Promoting the use of alternative fuels in transportation.
The Columbia-Willamette Clean Cities Coalition is a member-driven 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that supports fleets in deploying transportation carbon emission solutions.
We specialize in fostering partnerships with key fleets, industry stakeholders, government, academia, and policymakers to catalyze clean fuel and technology adoption.
Since 1994 we’ve been providing tailored educational resources, grant and incentive support, technical assistance, workforce training, and producing outreach events specifically for our member fleet and clean transportation
industry members to help accomplish their goals.
Our members are a tight-knit group of local and regional public and private fleets, industry, and government leaders who are driven to try new fuels and technologies enjoy sharing missteps and success stories with their peers.
Our Network is national in scope as part of the greater U.S. Department of Energy Clean Cities program, with nearly 100 coalitions nationwide. As a national program, we’re in constant contact with Federal agency folks and are a preferred partner on many federal grants.
Through our nationwide efforts, we’ve developed an extensive network we’ll leverage for you.
Mission and Values – Our Five R’s

Fostering relationships with our stakeholders and partners
Clean Cities in the Northwest
In 2020, the Columbia-Willamette Clean Cities and the Western Washington Clean Cities joined forces to create the first truly bi-state clean transportation and fleet-focused organization. The coalitions, separately formed in 1994, provide over 50 years of combined experience in catalyzing clean transportation.
The goal of the merger is to foster greater communication between fleets located in both states to help reduce barriers and catalyze the adoption of cleaner fuels and technologies.
Both organizations are housed under one roof and managed by our team; however, the coalitions continue to retain their original historic identities and tailored approaches to serving fleets and clean industry partners throughout their respective regions.
