Benefits / Why Work for Us:

Utah Clean Cities Coalition (UCCC), formerly Salt Lake Clean Cities, was the 16th coalition in the nation to join the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Clean Cities Program in 1994. Today it is one of nearly 100 coalitions across the country that is part of the U.S. DOE’s Vehicle Technologies Program—a program designed to reduce the U.S. import and overall consumption of petroleum. Since its establishment UCCC has grown into a statewide, 501(c)3 nonprofit with a robust network that spans the state and the nation.

Through the promotion of alternative fuels, alternative fuel vehicles, and fuel economy strategies, the coalition has worked to ease concerns about volatile gas prices and rising public and environmental health issues. Working closely with the federal and state government, as well as its stakeholders, UCCC leverages its resources to bring funding into Utah to support the development and deployment of alternative fuel infrastructure and vehicles.

The UCCC team is a dynamic, self starting, collaborative group who loving call themselves “transportation nerds”. We are always welcoming new talent and would love to *virtually* meet you! This position is part-time contract based with opportunity to grow as funding and compatibility allows.
