Clean Fuels Ohio


Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve air quality and health, reduce environmental pollution, and strengthen Ohio’s economy by increasing the use of cleaner, domestic fuels and energy-saving vehicles.


Established in 2002 and headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, Clean Fuels Ohio is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to making Ohio a cleaner, healthier and more prosperous state.  In addition to partnering with organizations to implement advanced fuel solutions and vehicle technologies, we are helping to build a statewide fueling and charging infrastructure that supports these efforts.  We also collaborate with partners in the transportation industry and local, state and federal government to promote the use of advanced fuels and vehicle technologies and to reduce barriers in order to create and maintain a level playing field for our members and stakeholders.    .

Advanced Fuels
Did you know that the United States still imports about half of its petroleum, two-thirds of which is in the form of gasoline and diesel. About 90% of Ohio’s petroleum-based fuels are imported from out of state. Dependence on petroleum increases our trade deficit, harms our environment and leaves organizations vulnerable to unexpected price fluctuations and global and national supply chain disruptions.
Advanced fuels are proven performers for your organization’s transportation needs. They reduce risks and negative impacts because they are more stable in cost, reliable and produced domestically, with significant production in Ohio.

Policy Work
We are the only organization in Ohio's clean transportation industry that works at the local, state and federal levels to remove policy obstacles for our members and stakeholders.  We accomplish this through direct advocacy on legislation and executive agency policy, and by providing policymakers with insight and expertise to create policies that keep Ohio moving forward in the deployment of advanced fuels.
The depth and breadth of our resources are also unique.   Our Director of Policy, Jason Phillips, is a 15-year veteran of the Ohio General Assembly.  His experience, combined with our educational and collaborative approach, has strengthened our relationships at the Statehouse and added value for our members. Our successful approach to policy has also been adopted by other Clean Cities coalitions.
Our policy work is ongoing year-round. We also host an annual Statehouse Education & Outreach Day for our members, actively participate in the Energy Independence Summit which is presented by the Transportation Energy Partners in Washington, D.C.  on federal policy, present the Legislator of the Year Award at the Midwest Green Transportation Forum and Expo, and publish a monthly blog.

We have worked with hundreds of private and public sector organizations to identify and implement game changing strategies that deliver predictable savings and a return on investment.  At the same time, we focus on helping them achieve their sustainability goals.   Our approach begins by developing a comprehensive understanding of each client's needs and conducting an in-depth analysis.  We combine these findings with our expertise across the spectrum of advanced fuels and vehicle technologies to pinpoint the best solution and offer additional flexible services, including implementation assistance, post-deployment support, training, and access to funding opportunities to maximize their ongoing success.   We also recognize our clients for their success through our highly acclaimed Ohio Green Fleets program, and last, but certainly not least, as a nonprofit, our prices are far below those of other consulting firms.
