Partnerships are advancing electric vehicles and other cleaner transportation initiatives in the Bay Area.

Partnerships for Cleaner Transportation

Local Government Electric Vehicle Fleet Project

The Local Government Electric Vehicle Fleet Project is a high impact initiative to showcase electric vehicles in multiple government fleets, create substantial direct emission reductions, and serve as a model to scale this clean energy solution nationwide. Project partners are working to purchase and install 90 all electric vehicles and 90 charging points throughout the Bay Area. This clean transportation infrastructure will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 400,000 pounds per year and also significantly reduce air pollution. The project is generously supported by a $2.8 million grant from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission and is a partnership between Alameda County, Sonoma County, Sonoma Water District, Transportation Authority of Marin, City of San Francisco, City of San Jose, City of Fremont, City of Concord, City of Oakland, City of Santa Rosa, and the Bay Area Climate Collaborative.

Bay Area EV Corridor (government to government working group for electric vehicle projects)

The federal government recently released two competitive solicitations for up to $2.4 billion in funding for electric vehicle conversions and demonstration and deployment projects. Bay Area jurisdictions have responded with competitive applications. This working group meets quarterly to coordinate electric vehicle projects regionally. San Francisco, Alameda County, Oakland, and San Jose have taken leadership roles in this effort.

East Bay Clean Cities Coalition

Clean Cities is a government-industry partnership for petroleum reduction. The region's coalition, one of 86 nationally, meets bi-monthly to review resources provided by the U.S. Department of Energy and local industry specialists. Since 1993, Clean Cities coalitions nationwide have put more than half a million alternative fuel vehicles on the road, avoiding the use of over 2 billion gallons of petroleum.
