The St. Louis Regional Clean Cities Program, part of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) program to expand the commercial use of alternative fueled vehicles, is a voluntary initiative composed of fleet owners/operators, plus fuel and vehicle industry entities who supply them as well as government representatives from the St. Louis region (Missouri-Illinois).  The goals of the Program are to reduce dependence on foreign oil, improve air quality and promote economic development in the St. Louis region.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) formally designated the St. Louis metropolitan area as a Clean City in November 1994, based on voluntary commitments to the program made by 32 participating public and private entities.  These commitments were delineated in a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by DOE and the program participants.  The MOU serves as a collective implementation plan.

Clean Cities provides a means for coordinating the purchase, refueling and repair of clean-fuel vehicles.  Clean Cities also affords individual fleet owners and operators the economies of scale offered through bulk purchasing and sharing refueling and maintenance facilities.  While Clean Cities is primarily oriented at serving the mutual interest of public and private fleets, the actions taken will make alternative fuel technology accessible to everyone.  Alternative fuels include bio-diesel, electricity, ethanol, natural gas and propane.
