State of Maryland Clean Cities
The State of Maryland Clean Cities works with vehicle fleets, fuel providers, community leaders, and other stakeholders to save energy and promote the use of domestic fuels and advanced vehicle technologies in transportation.
Mike Jones serves as the State of Maryland Clean Cities Coordinator and Transportation Program Manager for the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA). He manages several programs which aim to displace petroleum use and reduce emissions while stimulating economic growth. Jones also conducts research and outreach for a variety of initiatives and policies that promote alternative fuel vehicles and infrastructure. Having been with the agency since 2013, he has also provided grant management for several local municipality energy projects and for a resiliency incentive program for back-up power generators.
Prior to his time at the MEA, Jones interned at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, where he supported multiple projects which sought to help states use renewable energy and energy efficiency to meet air quality standards. Jones graduated from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Policy, along with a minor in Sustainability Studies. While at the University of Maryland, he was a Fellow of the Federal Semester Program, a selective year-long program which aims to develop insight into federal energy and environmental policy.
