About Palmetto Clean Fuels

The Palmetto Clean Fuels Coalition (formerly known as Palmetto State Clean Fuels Coalition (PSCFC)) is part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Clean Cities program and is one of approximately 100 designated coalitions in the United States. The Department of Energy approved the application for PSCFC's designation in 2004, thus recognizing the commitment of our stakeholders to building an alternative fuels market in South Carolina. The Palmetto Clean Fuels Coalition is dedicated to promoting alternative fuels, fuel blends, advanced vehicles, hybrid vehicles, fuel economy, and idle reduction. As a Clean Cities organization, the Palmetto Clean Fuels Coalition strives to advance the nation's economic, environmental, and energy security by supporting local decisions to adopt practices that contribute to the reduction of petroleum consumption.

The Palmetto Clean Fuels Coalition is made up of volunteer public and private stakeholders aimed at promoting alternative fuels, advanced vehicle technology, and clean transportation in general. Palmetto Clean Fuels Coalition produces a monthly newsletter and hosts quarterly events (lunch and learns, webinars, workshops, and training sessions) for our stakeholders throughout the State.

Becoming a stakeholder in the Palmetto Clean Fuels Coalition is simple. Membership is free and includes email updates on grant opportunities, education and outreach, and promotion of your organization on our website. Stakeholders are asked to complete a copy of our Memorandum of Understanding which can be found on our website.


Palmetto Clean Fuels Coalition has some exciting things planned for the future – as we expand our membership and programs with the help of our advisory board. One future project will be to begin an Electric Vehicle campaign in the State.
