Stakeholder Spotlight – Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment

I’ve been involved with DMCC since the early days, and everyone who has come through has had a little bit different flair, but the dedication to the cause is always prominent and that’s why I’ve stuck around so long. You can feel the dedication and it’s refreshing to see in an organization. Working with fleets is difficult – if they make one mistake and invest in a technology that doesn’t work, they might not be around for long. Helping fleets navigate the transportation market and giving them solid support and knowledge in alternative fuel vehicles before they take the plunge is crucial and exactly what DMCC is great at.

Stakeholder Spotlight – National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)

DMCC was the second Clean Cities coalition to be formed – I started as an advisor for them and later became a board member. While I was involved with DMCC, there was a period where the coalition lost its legs and almost couldn’t stay afloat. During this time, I was working with the American Lung Association, and we were able to secure funding through the State Energy Program (SEP) grant to keep the organization alive. I served on the DMCC board from the early 2000s to 2010 and it was around this time that I transitioned to my job at NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory) and took a break from DMCC. That is, up until a few years ago when Bonnie, whom I had known for many years prior, became the executive director of DMCC and thought I would be a good fit for the board. Now I am happily serving on the coalition board once again and hope to use my insights from the lab to help further DMCC’s mission.
