Ira Dorfman

Ira Dorfman, Executive Director and Coordinator of the Greater Washington Region Clean Cities Coalition, is an internationally recognized expert in energy policy, alternative fuels, environmental transportation policy and international project development. His distinguished career includes positions as Professional Staff Member of the United States Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee; state government official; food industry trade association executive; and entrepreneur, establishing his own consulting firm, eMobility International.

Dorfman has represented a wide variety of organizations and worked extensively with corporate and municipal fleets in the United States to make them more environmentally conscious. He has collaborated with Anheuser-Busch on its environmental efforts in the Hunts Point section of the Bronx, NY to increase its use of natural gas in its delivery truck fleet, and to install particulate traps and other emission controls on its older trucks. He was instrumental in bringing natural gas transit buses to Montgomery County, Maryland, both helping the County find funding sources for the project and working with them to identify available technologies.

Dorfman served as Chairman of the Washington, DC Section of the Society of Automotive Engineers; Chairman of the Energy Users Group, an ad hoc organization of Washington area food and agriculture organizations; and Chairman of the Public Relations Committee of the Natural Gas Vehicle Coalition.
