Send in Your Numbers for Our Stakeholder Annual Report

Dear Stakeholders and Supporting Members of Lone Star Clean Fuels Alliance,
The US Department of Energy's Clean Cities (DOE) Program has a goal of saving 2.5 billion gallons of petroleum per year by 2020.  In order to track this progress, every coalition is required to submit an annual report to the US DOE.   

LSCFA has a goal of increasing its petroleum reduction by 15 percent every year.  The annual survey allows us to help track that progress.  This information is used in speeches, reports, news articles, as well as funding updates to the State Energy Program and Congress. Additionally, the coalition is often called upon to provide data on the number and type of alternative fuels and clean technology vehicles in Central Texas to help provide validity to air quality commitments in the State’s air quality plan.

Follow the 3 easy steps to be included in our report.
  1. Review the Annual Report Guide Sheet. LSCFA created this sheet to help you gather the requested information.   This provides guidance to the necessary information needed to complete your Report.
  2. Fill out the Stakeholder Annual Report Template with your 2014 figures. Rename this report with your organizational name and save.  You only need to fill out sections that apply to your fleet. Please feel free to skip sections that aren't applicable. 
  3. Send your completed report to
If you have any questions please contact Stacy Neef at  The report is due back to the LSCFA office on March 1, 2015
As always thank you for continued support of your Clean Cities coalition.
