Please join us December 15th 9:00am-12:00pm at the Scottsdale – ASU SkySong facility.
As the success of CNG and LPG grows, what is in-store for the next 5-years?
The bottoms-up redesign of these engines has created a Tsunami of change. Product line extension is continuing to develop. Will new technology be a part of this new roll-out.  Perhaps, completely new versions will be available?
What is at hand and in the pipeline for even more effective innovation?
We will have the OEM’s on hand from Cummins, Roush & Westport to present their engines and vehicles coming soon – and order ready.
More details to follow.  No charge for the meeting, parking or refreshments.

Valley of the Sun Clean Cities Coalition has been selected to host an all-day training meeting sponsored by the National Fire Prevention Association.  It will be held November 30 at the ASU SkySong facility. 
This important meeting is structured to bring Fire Fighter first responders up to date on best practices for responding to a crash of alternative fuel vehicles:  Electric, Compressed Natural Gas and Propane. 
Clearly, the procedures for handling damaged alt-fuel vehicles can vary widely from those of traditional gasoline of diesel vehicles. VSCCC welcomes a projected 100 Arizona and New Mexico Fire Fighters.

Valley of the Sun Clean Cities will coordinate an alternative fuel vehicle display at the bi-annual convention of Fleet Pros on March 24th at the SRP PERA Club.  A full scope display of Clean Fuel vehicles will also feature ride-and-drive opportunities for the Fleet Operators attending the convention.

Mission

We are dedicated to advancing the environmental, energy and economic security of Central and Northern Arizona by advocating and participating in practices that promote clean domestic energy and reduce dependence on conventional petroleum based fuels.

History

The Maricopa Association of Governments joined the Department of Energy’s Clean Cities Program in 1997. The Clean Cities Program was created by the federal Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPACT) to support voluntary efforts by government and business to reduce our country’s dependence on foreign oil. There are now over eighty coalitions nationwide.

In July 2001, Maricopa Association of Governments handed over the Clean Cities operation to a group of independent stakeholders representing local industry and government. This group was re-chartered by DOE under the new name, Valley of the Sun Clean Cities Coalition. This new and improved coalition emerged with an innovative vision and strategic plan for cleaner air and a future less dependent on petroleum. Today, the coalition’s stakeholders represent more than sixty government, utility, and business organizations.

The VSCCC’s stakeholders operate nearly 7,000 alternative fuel vehicles and displace some 51 million gallons of petroleum fuel annually with alternative fuels such as natural gas, biodiesel, propane, ethanol, and electricity. According to a 2010 survey, this represents 10% of the annual consumption of alternative transportation fuel in the U.S.
