Southeast Louisiana Clean Fuel Partnership
The Southeast Louisiana Clean Fuel Partnership works with vehicle fleets, fuel providers, community leaders, and other stakeholders to reduce petroleum use in transportation.
Rebecca Otte is the Clean Fuel Partnership Coordinator at the Regional Planning Commission (RPC) which includes eight parishes (counties) in southeast Louisiana: Jefferson, Orleans (includes the City of New Orleans), Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. John the Baptist, St. Tammany, and Tangipahoa. Otte has served as the coordinator for the Southeast Louisiana Clean Fuel Partnership since 2007. She also oversees the RPC's Brownfield Redevelopment Program.
Prior to moving to New Orleans in 2003, Otte worked for four years as a staff engineer and project manager for an environmental consulting firm in Huntington Beach, California, where her projects included phase-one and -two environmental site assessments, underground storage tank removals and closures, aboveground tank installations, and environmental risk assessment and remediation of contaminated sites.
