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.
Scott DeWees is co-coordinator for the Western Washington Clean Cities Coalition, housed within the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency. He joined the team in 2010 to manage the Coalition's Recovery Act grant. During that time he worked closely with many of the Coalition's members on a wide variety of petroleum reduction projects. In 2014 WWCCC adopted a co-coordinator model and DeWees was promoted to lead the coalition's consultative services for medium and heavy duty vehicles and infrastructure.
"My overarching professional goal is to advance low carbon energy sources. I believe my role in the industry is to translate technical possibility into favorable business opportunities that diversify and decarbonize our energy sources."
Prior to joining the Coalition, DeWees was an analyst in the commercial solar industry and delivered multiple third party-financed solar projects for US cable companies. He earned a BA in Economics and Environmental studies from Western Washington University. His studies focused the confluence of energy markets and climate change.
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.
