WELCOME TO CLEAN CITIES! The Road to Clean Cities here. This broc;;hure will explain how your city can become one of many Clean Cities working to help accelerate the introduction and expand the use of altc::mative fuels and alternative fuel vehicles In the following pages you w i ll find a guide to the U.S. <>f Energy s (00E) Clean Cities program. We 'll explain the Cltan Cities program and how DOS can as.sist your city in the goal-settiog, eoali tion building and com mitments process necessary for Qean City designation We'IJ aJso provide you with a s t ep-by-step guide to developing your 0'"'" Clean Cities Program Plan as well as a Memorandum of Understanding under whic.h your cit y can u nite with other o rgan izati ons interested i n alternat ive fuel s and alternative fuel vehicles We include a directory of contacts that can lend guidance for your progtam a listing of various funding and a survey for distribution among your dty's alternative fuel market stakeholders. Guidelines and infonnatioo found here will be regularly updated with the quarterly p ub licatio n of tbe Cl.etln Cities newsJeue r The Drive. The Road to Clean Cities should be used as a helpful resource for implementing y o u r Clean Cilits program. Key step.s and imponant rcoommendations for your program's success are pro\' i dd. a l though your city may need to modify approach to reflect local circumstances. Jn addit i on. if you have questiOn$ or need more information about Clean Cit ies, we have e!:itablished a Clean Citit's toll -free number so that we can provide you with infonn:uion about the progrdlll.

I. GETTING STARTED WHAT IS CLEAN CITIES? Clean Cities is a voluntary federal program designed to accelerate and ex)XInd the use of alternative fuel vehicles (AFV) in communities th.tough out the c ou nuy and to provide refueling and maintenance facilities for their operation. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Clean Cities encourages local governments and organiutions to form public/private part nersh ips in develop ing markets for AFVs Clean Citits is founded on lhe principle that our nouion's objectives: arc best accompli$hed by mcHivated individuals working together for a common goal. That's why Clean. Cities i s voluntary and that' $ \vhy Clea" Cities encourages teamwork. WHY SHOULD MY CITY JOIN CLEAN CITIES? Transportation has an enormous irnpac1 on t h e economy and the cnvironmenl. Clean Cities can be an effect ive way to address transportation concerns uniq u e to your city well as to help reduce the amount of petroleum we im pon from overse as, improve the quality of our air, and s t imu\ate economic activity in some of America s maj or indus1rie$. Presently, the transportation sector il 97 percent dependent on petroleum and accounts for two-thirds of all U S oil imports. Morcovec, without allemativt transponation fuels. we can expect our dependence on foreign oil to grow to a sta-ggering 70 percent by the year 2020. With the increasing reliance on imported oil and the growt h in \ 'chicles and number of miles driven transportation's sh.atc of carbon emissions risen to approximately one thlrd of all U.S. c,arbon emiss ions. These trc .nds have become alarming : and in response the Federal government has established a number of JegidaJive. and executive directives aimed a t increas ing the util i zation of alternative fuels and alternative fuel vch.icles in America's t ransportat i on sector: E.xeeutive Order 12844: f-ederal Use of Ahcmative Fuel ed Vehicles, 1 993 Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPAct) Executive Orde r 12759: Federal Energy Manasemcnt, 1991 Clean Air Act Amendments of l9 90 Alternative Motor FUels Act of 1988. These directives seck 1 0 displace conventional transponatjon fuels with domestically produced alternative increase the acquisit ion of AFVs; develop the altemative fuel supply deve l op AFV conversion, mai ntenance and service industries; and improve air quality. Clean C ities links these formidab le goals. requiring innovation. dedication. teamwork. and the re.aJignment of resources. Clean Cities can be part of the oolution: your participat i on a n d initiat ive are Tire Road to Clean Cltits I


WHAT DOES THE PROGRAM DO? The fundamental ro l e of Clean Cirie.s is to help forge locally based public/private partnerships to both d eve lop markets and crea te broad market acceptance for AFVs. But organizing stakeholders is just the beginning. Clean Ciries is a comprehensive program shepherds cities tl\rough tl1e goal ..setti ng coalilion-building, and commitments process necessary for a Clean C ities dc$.ignation. Upon designation, DOE will actively encourage perfonnanc e by each coalition. Creating an alternative fuels marke t is a long-tcnn prospect Accordingly, Clean Cilits must be an enduring program whereby cities cominually pioneer innovations and aspire to effect nationaJ as well as loc-al ach i eveme nt s in promoting alternative fuel agendas In support of e.leh new Clean Cities candidate. DOE wiJl also: Appoin t a Federal coo r dinator Provide p(Ogram implement a t ion and Memorandum of Understanding guidelines Guide placement of Federal AFVs Di r oct the award of Federal funds and grants as available Provide general assist a n ce and materials for public relations and promotional act i v i ties Provide craining for coordinators. fleet ope r ators, and other partic ipants Provide a ho t line/cJearinghouse fot technical and olher inf omlation Con duct information exchange worbbops Prov i de assi stance in public educalion activilies HOW CAN WE JOIN CLBAN CITIES? T h e following n::qui red steps w ill lead you to a Clean Citit-s designatio n : The Road to Clean Cities 2 ..._ Memorandum of Undlll'*&andfng


WHAT ARE THE DETAILS? Specific actions. that musl be taken include: (I) Appoint o Cl-an Cities Coordinator The Coordinator should be a responsiblt local representath e witlr ready access to city decision -makers (e g emplo)'ed by tht offic e of Mayor. Cil) Manager, Chamber of OJmmerce. etc.). 0 The Coordinator shou l d serve as executive for the Clean Cities program o The Coordinator should contact the region's DOE Suppon Office. T his Office w ill provide a specjalist to suppo rt t he Clean Citie-s Coordinator and assist with program conception, outwreach, implementation. and operation (See Appendix A for DOE Suppon Offloe contacts and phone numbers). (2) Hold Stakeholder Meetings Stakeholders are those interests that can facilitate or obstruct tlt e implementation of desired AFV programs. Having represtntothes of 1hest interests a1 t he table earl y on will impiY)ve the likelihood of garnering their suppt>rt and minimizing I

(3) Develop a Program Plan Behind every successful program lies a slrategic pUm. In thi s case, the Program Plan outlines the goals, organi



II. CLEAN CITIES PROGRAM PLAN ELEMENTS OF TH PROGRAM PLAN Once the Clean Cities Coord inat or is chosen and th e first stakeholder meetings are held, a Pcogram Plan be deve l oped. As the co r e of Cleon Cities. the Program Plan provides an opportunity f o r a city to create its own loc3J approa<:h 10 Clean Cities goals. M o r eover, a comprehens ive Program Plan fosters better program implementation and management, enabling stakeho lders 10 specify and :..chieve program obj ectives. The following essentiaJ clements should be i11cl uded in a Clean Cities P rogram Plan: ./ Set fonh goals ./ Create an organizatiOnal structure .I Ch.a.raeterlze and qoantify the AFV marlt'el situat jo o .I Set forth obj ectives to ac hie ve program goa l s (t h e ac tio n plan) .I Delineate t imetablel (Qr achieving goab ./ EstabHsh a mo.ottoripg SYtcm. WhUe it is critical thai all six of the se progr a m elements be addressed, variacions can be made to reflect local circumstanus. The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), under which che city will become inaugurated into DOB 's n alionaJ Clean Citie s program, will be basod upon chc c it) 's Program Plan (a n d is addressed in Chapter III). The k(}ad IQ Cleott Citirs 5


(I) SET FORTH GOALS The first step in developing the Program Plan is to delineate a set of program goals. Goals are an essenlial element of any p lanning process. They define what an organ iza tion seeks to accomplish and why. and they give the org.aniz.ation its direction. After escablishing tlle goals, 1he city can then define objectives--or action steps--by which to accomplish the goals. Time f rames for achieving these goals s hou ld also be defined. National Cilia Goals The Clea n Cities program atrempts to assist <:icies in working together toward common. national goals. Over the past several years the Federal govemmcnl. through legislative and executive actions directed t oward the increased utiliuuion of ahemative fuels, has set fonh goals providing a foundation for the Clean Cilies mission. The following list of national Clean Cities goals should be incorporated into the Program Plan: o Displace conventionaltransponation fuels with domestically produced, c;lean-buming alternative fuel'$ (AF) 0 lncrca..e the acquis-ition and ut ilizatio n of AFVs o Develop aJtema1ive fuel supply infrastructure and vehicle conversion. maintenance, and related service industries 0 Advance public understanding on the benefits and costs of using AFVs. Local Clean Cilits Goals Jn addition to the national goats. cities may wish to specifY goaJs relating to local clean air problems or local economic situations Examples of local goals in clude : o Im prove air quality and reach t he attainment levels specified in the Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) o Contribute to economic development oe ... etop the area's ahemat ive fueLs industty Create new fuels industries Benefit loca l businesses that use AFVs Increase local taxable revenue Increase area's production of clean energy (e.g., corn crops. etc.) D Increase energy conservation and security. (2 ) CREATE A SIMPLE ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE After delineating lhe goals, stakeholders should establish their program'-s organi:uational structure. Cleon Cities organization must address effective The Road to Clean Cities 6


te.ade.rsbjp, member ship. recruitment, decisioo making funding. and imp l emen t a t ion goals. However, the s.tructure shou l d be k e pt simpl e because staff resources and lh t sta k eholders' time wiJI like l y be limited. In man y cases as few as tw o worklng groups may be sufficient to accomplish program objectives Because Cities is a locaJJy-driven program it is suggested that your Clean Cities program be housed wit hin a l ocal governmen t office, s uch .as the Mayor'$ Office or the City Planning Office TtUs cho i ce shou1d aJso in<:lude a p lace where the Cleo" Coordi natQf condl.ICtS his or her daily z.c,ivities Whi\e: -various OJgani t at )onal s u uctures can and have been used. an interactive hieriU'thicaJ struct ure may best achieve Cleon Cities objectives tc> c oordinate national gol!lls with loca l interests. For eumple. 1he following recommended hierarchy p r ovides inlerattion between the Steer ing Commiuee and focused Wo Groups: ...... Steering Committee A Steering comprised of key Memor311du m of Underst andi n g (MOU) signa t or ies, can be cs.tablished to conduct ove rall guidance an d p

Steering Committee meet at least twice a year. Therefore, establishin& an informal Executive Committee may be use(ul to respond to immediate inquiries during the year (e.g to answer lnquiries from the media, etc.). This informal Executive Com.ntitlee may be comp ri::;ed of the c .hair:s from the Wo'*ing Groups and Steering Committee. Working Groops Working Groups function under the guidance of the Steering Conunjuee which delegates the tasks necessary to achie\'e organizational objec:tives and long-term goals. Tasks may include : gathering information, conducting reports developing draft legislative language or local ordinances, and addre $5ing other information needs of the S t eering Committee The chairs of the Working Groups report their findings to the Steering Committee for final act ion. To educate members, provide a sound knowledge base for decision making. Jessen the burden upon staff, and provide consistency to the process. the membership of the Working Groups should include members of the Steering Committee Care must be given to ensure lhat each Working Group carries a ba l anced representation of Titles of the Working Groups sho uld be broad l y defined enabling them to an equal division of the organizational objectives. Nevertheless, the number and t)'pe of Working Gro u ps will vary from city to city Youc city may choose from among the foJJowing examples, combining Working Groups with sim ilar functions where appropriate. Fuels Working Group A Fuels Working Group could be established to represent each alte-rnative fuel chosen for part i cipation in Clean Cities (e.g .. methanol, natural gas, propane. ethanol, electric. etc ). This group may focus its effor t s on increasing fuel availability and pcomotjng fuel usage, and encouraging fuel saJ'c,ty. Communication..(l; Working Group A Communications Group could focus on outreach activit ies such as preparing press releases providing speakers for community meetings, and delivering informational material to This Working Group could also develop media materials and campaigns, stage public n:.Jat ions events and activ ities, and interact w ith industry and DOB public relations specialists. lAg isJ!Jion WorJsing Group. A Legislation Working G r oup cou J d monitor Federal, state and local legislative initiatives in order to: forecast future Clean Cities strategies ; further develop Clw1 Cities prepare for changing legislation that may impact the direction of the Clean Cities program; and partic ipate in legislati\'e activities that concern altemative fuel issues The Legislation Working Group could also be the voice for Clea n Cities in state and l egislatures For instance, Clean Cilie$ $1ak eholders may wish to affect state laws or local ordinances governing transponation The Road to Clean CiJies 8


fuels, or promote initiatjves such as tax rebates. Public Utility Commission (PUC) rate treatment, conversion subsidies. etc Fleets Working Group. A FJeets Working Group serves as the liaison between the Clean Cities organiz.ation and fleet owners and managers. This group could communicate the benefits of ahernative fuels to fleet operators, develop approaches for sharing fue.ling facilities, and facilitate vehicle procurements and technician training programs. The fleets Working Group would be important for assimilating the stakeholders' demand for AFVs. and conveying this demand to vehicle manufacturers and Federal fleet managers. Funding Working Group. A Funding Working Group could be organized to identify available financial inc ent ives to support program impk:mentat.ion, reduce the cost to purchase and use AFVs. and develop associated AFV infrastructure. It could aJ$0 identify s ources for continued funding of Clean Cities promotional activities. (See Appendix B for Fundjng Opport unities information.) Procurement WorlOng Group. A Procurement Working Group could focus on developing documents that s.uppon the purchase of AFVs and resolving vehicle purchase issues. Useful documents tllat the Group could develop might include vehicle Ji.sts of desirable options or a fue.J/operatlng co st analysis of different AFVs. The Procurement Working Group would also work close ly with the AFV Coordinat i ng Group. Standards Working Group. A Standards Working Group could coord inate industry standards among manufacturers and seek to adopt and incorporat e finvironrnental Protection Agency (EPA) and EPAcl standard$. AFV Coordinatlog Group, An A.FV Coordina ting Group could be establi shed to i nfluence Federal fleet purchase and deployment decisions in Clean Cities. This would allow the Federal fleet's use as a leveraging mechanism to increase the. numbers or AFVs purchased, thus promoting infrastructure development. This Grou p would also develop reques ts for Federal vehicles that are consistent with local alternative fuel needs and determine at what ra1io the locality intended to match the Federal government's deployment decisions (3) ESTABLISH OBJECTIVES Objectives are established by the Stccriog Committee to achieve organi1.ational goals. Objec1i..,es are addressed through the active suppon of the Working Groups and are the "how to" eJemenls of lhc Program Plan and the heart of the Clean Cities program. Your objectives muSl be challenging measurable. and direetJy lead to lhe aehie..,ement of CleQJt Cities goats. Objectives can range from stakeholder commilmeniS to increase vehicle purchases to passing cily ordinances or state laws. Objcctive.l\ should demonslrate achievement beyond lhe initial market situation. The The Road to Clean Cities 9


Clean Cities organiucion should be structured to accept from all s.ource.s, inside and oUiside of the o r ganization The following are examples of objectives th.a:t can be adop t ed by Worlting Groups. T his l ist is i n no way comprehensive; it what can be. and i n some instances has been, accomplished through a Clean program. Ini tia l Working Group mee t ings should focus on outlining objec tives In subsequent meetings. tasks can be assigned and limerablcs devel oped G()(Jl: INCREASE TH ACQUISITION AND UTIUZATION OF APVS (Titese objective$ should be aggregated in order to develop an overall veh icle acquisition schedule lhat dcn()fts Ythicle acquisitions by /996. 2(){)(), ere.) Example Objecfio;es: o Assis t the local school dis t rict to purchase AFV buses over the next two budge t cycles o Develop tramc con t ro l measures (TCM), such as rugh occupan c y vehide (HOV) Janes, tbat allow AFV participation (House Bill SIP) 0 Work with the local U.S. Pos t Office to convert a percentage of ils flee1 10 AFVs by 1996 c Include AFVs in State Implementation Pla.os (SlP) in order to gain emiss i ons c r edits and CMAQ funds. C Require city fleecs with 30 or more vehicles (0 convert 10 percent of the fleet to an altema1.ive fuei by the end of 1996 (City Ordinance). 0 Develop a plan to introduce AFVs into the Sta t e government fleet (S1are House Bill). c Support the creation of tax cred i ts for the purchase or convers-ion of new AFVs (State lcgislatjon). c Exempt AFV$ from selected state !Hi.les tax or other local taxes or surcharges. o Allow public utilities to include i n their rates the incremental cost of new AFVs and convening convent ional vehicles to operate on alternative fuels. The Rood to Clton Cities 10


Goal: DEVELOP AI.TERNATE FUEL SUPPLY INFRASTRUCTURE AND VEHICLE CONVERSION, MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE INDUSTRIES Example ObjCfives: c Encourage state and local governments to provide public charging stations for recharging electri c \'Chicles. c Allow public utilities to include in thejr rates t h e incremental cost of i nstalling alternative fuel fueling facilities. o Esta bl i sh special pm:ing at public buildings, airpon, and t rsns porta tiQn facilities. c Require the city Heet to auain the twin goats of a I percent per year reduc-tion in fuel use and a 1.5 per<:ent per year reduction in carbon dioxide emissions (Executive Order). 0 AUow gasoline filling stations to sell compressed natural gas, or other types o f fuels for vehicles (Ci ty Ordinance). o an educational campaign for fire marshals to allow for the safe ins ta lla ti o n of fueling s tations. o CreAte a fuel tax exemptio n for n atural gas and propane The fuel 1a.x could be replaced w i t h a fuel tax decal ranging in cost (based on gross vetUcle weight) from $70 to $125 per year per \'Chicl e (StateHouse Bill) a Create an aftennarket, emissions.based alternati ve fuel system equipment certification (Sw.te House 8i11). c Allow private sector spending on the construction of fueling stations to match Federal AFV funded programs which will be locally based. c Exempt vendors who sell natural gas as a motor (uel from the PUC definition of a local distribution company (State House Bil l) c Exempt Afs or AF fueling facilities from state sales tax or other s tat e or local taxes or s urcharges (other than such taxes or surcharges which are dedicated for transportation purposes). Tile Road to Clean Cities II


Goal: ADVANCE PUBUC UNDERSTANDING OF THE BENEFITS AND COSTS OF USING ALTERNATIVE RULES IN MOTOR VEl11CLES Objt.etio;eli: 0 Inst i tute public education programs to promote the use of AFVs. 0 Ensure good local media coverage of alternative fuel developme nts o Prepare and diStribute press rel eases. o Provide speakers t o local c ivic and profess i ona l organizations to promote AFVs o Participate in local school sc:ieooe fairs; provide recognition of science projects involving altemative fuels. C Support and contribute funding to student engineering competitions on AFV design in local hig h schools, college-s, and universities (4) CHARACTERIZE AND QUANTIFY THE AFV MARKET SITUATION t n order for the Work:ing Groups to define objective-s for transforming the City's transponation and fuel use profde. it is helpful to ft.rst characteri1.e and quantify the current AFV market situation (vehicles fueling sites. OEM dealer.5. oonvcrsion fa<:ilities, AFV maintenance locations) through a survey. A detailed alternative fuel vehicle survey i s included in Clean CiJies Succes.s Storiel (see Appendix C) and should be used to gather primary information from Clean Cities participants and Stakcholde rs, The survey should be distributed during lhe initial stakeholder meetings. As the program matures. the s-urvey panicipants and scope of information collected can be expanded. By ketping track of lhe AFV market, the city c .an: Define and accomplish the citys goals and objectives Track program developmen t Evaluate the effectiveness of Clean Cities stnuegjes Publicize the city's accomplishments:. (S) ESTABLISH A MONITORING SYSTEM In order to track the growth of the Clean Citit.s program. it will be necessary to establish a monitoring system. Tire Road t o Clean Cilies 12


Monitor Local Program AcoompllshmtnLt Suggested tools for program monitoring are (i) the list of objectives. (ii) the program timetable, and (iii) the Working Group. commiuee, and individua l assignments. Effective monitoring approaches include: 0 Periodic-written reports of actual vs. planned activities/accomplishment!;; D Open meetings t o eval uate actjvity M atu s in relation to objectives; o Alternative fuel vehicle user surveys; o Review and comments from stakeholders on overall program and success in meeting objectives and guals.

IlL MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING Once the Clean Cities Program P lan is complete-, the s tep is to draft the Memorandum of Unde r standing (MOU). For assis t ance wi t h preparing the MOU and for final approval of your MOU, contact the U S Depanmen t of Energy Support Offite (See Appendi x A, "Clean Cities Directory") Your MOU shou l d he based on the mode.! p r ovided on the f ollowing pages. WHAT I S A MEMORAND UM OF UNDERSTANDING? A Memorandum o( Understand ing (MOU) is a w ritte n agreement stat in g basi<: understandings of tasks and desc ribing a method for ptrfomting these task s between the U.S. Department of Energy ( D OE), the city, and other signatory authorities (S e e Chapter II.
