The Southeast Florida Clean Cities Coalition, established in 1994, is pleased to welcome Miss Alisha Lopez as its new Clean Cities Coordinator. Alisha is a native Floridian who received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science from the University of Central Florida. While there, she developed and provided valuable research, data, and policy analysis skills applied to the impacts of weakening water restrictions and educational budgets as part of her work in the university internship program.
Alisha brings her passion for collaborative partnerships and alternative energy solutions for transportation to her work with the Coalition. Her immediate goals include a renewed focus on fuel technology outreach and education, maximizing Coalition growth, provision of technical assistance and best practices, and the expansion of alternative and renewable fuel use and infrastructure. She looks forward to working with the Southeast Florida Clean Cities Coalition members, the U.S. Department of Energy and fellow Coordinators in the Clean Cities Network, and the Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact to reduce petroleum use, greenhouse gas emissions, while advancing greater energy independence, clean fuels, and renewable technologies. Her interests are reading, writing and volunteering.
