ABOUT MICHIGAN CLEAN CITIES

Clean fuel. Clean air. Clean Cities.

Who We Are

Greater Lansing Area Clean Cities (GLACC) is a coalition of stakeholders working to address the national challenge of petroleum dependence through local activities that grow the market for alternative fuels and advanced vehicles. Our projects achieve cleaner air and energy security in mid-Michigan through alternative fuel and vehicle usage, and fuel economy practices. Our members and stakeholders include fleets, corporations, nonprofit organizations, utilities, local governments, and individuals – anyone interested in ways cleaner fuels, vehicles, and practices can improve our air quality and energy security.

WHAT WE DO

We are a resource for local and national information on clean and alternative fuels and vehicles. We help to promote and expand the usage of clean transportation options in mid-Michigan.

  • Have questions on how to incorporate alternative fuels into your fleet?
  • Wondering which alternative technology vehicles are available now to meet your fleet’s needs?
  • Want to learn how to save money on fuel costs?

Clean Cities Network

Clean Cities an initiative of the U.S. Department of Energy with the goal of improving air quality and energy security through petroleum displacement. Local coalitions, including GLACC, are public-private partnerships organized to educate and assist fleets and individuals in adopting the use of clean fuels and vehicles.

Annual Survey: Alternative Fuel Use and Conservation Practices

Measuring Coalition Impact

Each spring, GLACC surveys coalition stakeholders to measure the impact of our collective activities on petroleum conservation and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). This data helps GLACC understand what is working for area fleets as they adopt various alternative fuels and fuel conservation practices. By understanding what’s working here and nationally, GLACC personnel can better help our stakeholders analyze and implement solutions.

Propane Autogas Pricing Research

Growing LPG Markets

Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG, or Propane Autogas) is a widely used alternative fuel, but availability and pricing varies significantly across the country. GLACC and other Clean Cities coalitions around the country are working with fleets and fuel providers to research this issue and develop a report to help all stakeholders understand whether LPG is right for their operation. This report is expected to be completed by spring 2017. More on LPG available at the link below.
