Kelly Gilbert is Transportation Director at Metropolitan Energy Center, which she joined in 2008 as coordinator of the Kansas City Regional Clean Cities Coalition. She now shares coordinator duties with a co-coordinator and manages a small Clean Cities staff of clean energy enthusiasts. She has coordinated proposals resulting in 3 major grant awards from the U.S. Department of Energy for clean transportation planning and implementation, in addition to smaller private grants for outreach and training. Through these projects, MEC and its partners have managed nearly $40 million in clean transportation projects and have achieved deployment of hundreds of alternative fuel and advanced technology vehicles across 3 states and the installation of a variety of refueling stations that support hundreds more alternative fuel vehicles on major travel corridors.

Gilbert manages activities of the coalition and a collaborative agreement among four Clean Cities coalitions to remove barriers to local adoptions of alternative fuels. Under her leadership, the Clean Cities staff and stakeholders hold quarterly meetings and events, provide technical assistance to business and government agencies and tell the public the success stories of participant fleets. Gilbert sits on the Air Quality Forum for Mid-America Regional Council, and she previously co-chaired the Greater Kansas City Plug-In Readiness Initiative and oversaw Electrify Heartland to prepare the community for electric vehicles. She is a frequent visitor to local farmers' markets in Parkville, MO, where she lives with her husband and two teenaged children.
