A STN EXPO general session on July 26 will provide attendees with valuable information on how membership in local Clean Cities programs can provide funding and grant resources for alternative fuel and green school bus projects.

The session, held prior to the STN EXPO Trade Show, will be moderated by Sandra Loi, the Clean Cities project leader with the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and includes the perspectives of local coordinators and members.

Loi leads a panel that will consist of Richard Battersby, the coordinator of the East Bay (California) Clean Cities Coalition and the fleet services director for the City of Oakland; Colleen Crowninshield, the coordinator of the Tucson Clean Cities Coalition in Arizona; and Rick Wallace, a senior project analysts at the Oregon Department of Energy and past coordinator and current member of the Columbia-Willamette Clean Cities Coalition.

The discussion will center on how school districts and school bus operators can take advantage of funding resources to make their fleets green, as well as the number of training and networking opportunities. The panel will also share strategies for identifying grants for alternative fuels, partnerships and the various initiatives available through Clean Cities programs.
