Technology Integration Program Contacts

Clean Cities is part of the Technology Integration program in the U.S. Department of Energy’s Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO). Technology Integration information and tools provide objective/unbiased data and real-world lessons learned to inform future research needs and support local decision making. The program’s scope includes alternative fuels, energy efficient mobility systems (EEMS), and other measures that improve transportation efficiency and reduce transportation energy costs. The Technology Integration team includes staff from DOE headquarters, national laboratories, and technical contractors.

VTO Technology Integration activities are managed by DOE headquarters in Washington, D.C. Headquarters staff provide program direction and oversight to regional managers at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) and for related program activities at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), and other national labs. Headquarters support members shown below provide technical assistance and help to manage VTO Technology Integration projects.

Mark Smith is the Technology Integration Program Manager within the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Vehicle Technologies Office. In this role, he oversees a broad technology portfolio, which is focused on accelerating the development and widespread use of advanced vehicle technologies to advance affordable, domestic transportation fuels, and other fuel-saving technologies and practices. The Technology Integration Program portfolio includes Alternative Fuels, Fuel Economy, Electrification, Energy Efficient Mobility Systems, and the Alternative Fuels Regulatory Program.

Before joining DOE in 2010, Mark was an alternative fuel vehicle consultant to American Honda. In this position, he promoted the use of Honda's advanced technology vehicles to public and private fleet managers and implemented programs to increase adoption of these vehicles. Mark also understands that alternative fuel vehicle use hinges upon the development of refueling/re-charging infrastructure. From his previous positions with FuelMaker and Clean Energy, he has provided alternative refueling solutions ranging from home refueling of a single vehicle to some of the largest commercial, airport, and transit fueling stations in the United States.

Margaret supported various TI activities, such as organizing Clean Cities coordinator trainings, developing resources for Clean Cities coalitions, and assisting with program management responsibilities. She organized numerous Clean Cities coalition discussions regarding coalitions engaging with VW Settlement activities and best practices for coalitions within similar organizational structures. She created TI resources on the costs of alternative fueling infrastructure and facilitated coalitions sharing best practices.

Additionally, Margaret worked with Clean Cities coalitions on developing and implementing two competitively awarded projects addressing barriers to electric vehicle (EV) deployment. The Vehicle Charging Innovations for Multi-Unit Dwellings (VCI-MUD) project engaged multi-unit dwelling (MUD) stakeholders, identified innovative technologies that can reduce the administrative burden and improve the business case for MUD EV charging, and organized a series of technology pilot demonstrations. The Electric Vehicle Widescale Analysis for Tomorrow's Transportation Solutions (EV WATTS) project collects real-world use data from EVs and charging stations and will produce an anonymized nationwide dataset to inform future EV research and investment.

Prior to working with VTO, Margaret worked for Sustainable Energy Strategies, Inc. In this role she supported biodiesel and ethanol projects that improve infrastructure, develop feedstocks, educate stakeholders, and promote the use of biodiesel in heating oil.
