Western Washington Clean Cities
The Western Washington Clean Cities works with vehicle fleets, fuel providers, community leaders, and other stakeholders to reduce petroleum use in transportation.
Kimberley Cline, appointed co-coordinator of the Western Washington Clean Cities Coalition in June, 2014, coordinates partnerships, policy development, and outreach initiatives for the coalition. Her project-specific work focuses on building awareness of, and enthusiasm for, electric vehicles and supporting infrastructure. Cline also advocates for and develops local, state or federal policies to reduce greenhouse gases from transportation. Prior to joining Western Washington Clean Cities, she worked in communications, public relations and marketing spanning government, nonprofit and private sectors. She brings fourteen years of experience with environmental and public health issues, including air quality, alternative fuels, and international development.
Cline has a Master of Arts in International Environmental Policy from the Monterey Institute of International Studies where her studies focused on policies to stimulate the growth of renewable energy.

She is the former co-founder and owner/operator of a biofuels filling station in San Francisco, specializing in locally, sustainable biodiesel for residential customers and small business fleets. She also has over 8 years of experience as an engineer at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, a Department of Energy national lab specializing in high energy physics and photon science.
