Northern Colorado Clean Cities Coalition
The Northern Colorado Clean Cities Coalition 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.
Diego Lopez joined Northern Colorado Clean Cities (NCCC) as a Co-Coordinator in August 2018. Lopez now serves as the executive director for Northern Colorado Clean Cities. He is responsible for strategic planning, stakeholder services, education and outreach, public relations, and infrastructure development programs. Lopez has 7 years of experience in the energy and transportation industry and completed a bachelor's degree focused in environmental sciences and geography with a minor in physics from the University of Colorado Denver. With experience as an energy and transportation advisor with a demonstrated history of working with consumers, businesses, municipalities, utilities, and fleets, Lopez is available to assist coalition stakeholders with project development, technical workshops, locating funding opportunities, and supporting funding proposals.
Some of NCCC's major initiatives include:
- Drive Electric Northern Colorado – This initiative is designed to achieve widespread deployment of plug-in electric vehicles in the Northern Colorado Region.
- ReCharge Colorado – This program from the Colorado Energy Office works to advance the adoption of electric vehicles and installation of charging infrastructure in Colorado.
- Colorado Hydrogen Network – NCCC supports this project to promote the environmental and economic benefits of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies for transportation.
- CORWest – NCCC partners with Utah Clean Cities on this project to support consumer education, stakeholder engagement, and rural infrastructure development of electric vehicle charging with the expansion of alternative fuel corridors.
- Regional Electric Vehicle (REV) West Plan – NCCC works on this initiative as a project partner under Utah Clean Cities to help create an Intermountain West Electric Vehicle Corridor.
