About our Organization
East Tennessee Clean Fuels' (ETCleanFuels) mission is to increase the use of cleaner American fuels and vehicles and energy-saving transportation technologies to improve air quality and health, curb dependence on imported petroleum and support Tennessee's economy. ETCleanFuels works with vehicle fleets, individual owners, and fuel providers to create partnerships to facilitate the implementation of alternative fuels throughout Tennessee. ETCleanFuels works closely with Middle-West Tennessee Clean Fuels, creating a statewide hub for all things alternative fuels and manages the Drive Electric Tennessee (DET) initiative. DriveElectricTN's goal is to see 200,000 electric vehicle's on Tennessee's roads by 2028. Beginning with an electrification roadmap released in 2019, DriveElectricTN has become a multi-stakeholder statewide initiative encompassing state government organizations, local power companies, electric vehicle and charging providers, non-profits, local businesses, and engaged individuals who are all working towards the goal of increasing EV awareness and adoption.

We are seeking a passionate, self-organized Coordinator who is comfortable with in-person, phone, and digital communications, as well as having project management experience. Specific duties that are included but not limited to: - Production of communication media associated with development and adding content to social media pages, electronic communications, press releases, event announcements. - Conducts inquiries and outreach to potential stakeholders of DET to build membership programs.
