Tammie Bostick

Executive Director

Tammie Bostick leads Utah Clean Cities Coalition (UCCC) as Executive Director with a passion for clean fuels, clean air, and clean strategies. Tammie joined Utah Clean Cities in 2015 and considers it a dream job of collaborative work– thinking globally and acting locally in a world where everyone is an ally. 

In 2019, Tammie was elected as Vice President of Transportation Energy Partners (TEP), a collaborative group with the Clean Cities Coalition Network where she focuses on federal policy and Clean Cities advocacy. Tammie also currently serves as the Northwest Clean Cities Regional Council member serving her regional state Clean Cities Coalitions in Colorado, Idaho, Wyoming, Oregon, Washington and Hawaii. She was appointed in 2017, by Utah’s Governor, to Utah’s Motor Vehicle Review Board reviewing state fleet operations.

Beginning in 2020, Utah Clean Cities became the primary investigator of two highly innovative projects with the Department of Energy Vehicle Technologies Program: EVZion and CORWest. EVZion will pilot and demonstrate the feasibility of zero-emission electric shuttles in Zion National Park. The CORWest project connects eight Western regional states developing electric corridors in rural, gateway communities across the intermountain region. 

Additional projects that Utah Clean Cities orchestrated, under Tammie’s leadership, include the WestSmart EV workplace charging, Live & Work Electric fleet program (Work Electric). Work Electric is designed to demonstrate electrified transportation and advanced vehicle adoption with infrastructure for workplaces. Live & Work Electric Utah guides fleets to sustainable and zero emission targets, by transitioning to electric infrastructure and vehicle deployment. 

Tammie addresses groups locally and nationally on the future of transportation and climate communication focusing on actionable steps for fleets that include advanced fuels, vehicles and visionary thinking. She is actively engaged with local and national Renewable Natural Gas, RNG, projects with the goal of demonstrating carbon-benefiting fleets & infrastructure modeling. Utah Clean Cities has launched a pioneering Green Fleet program to generate transportation management plans targeting zero emissions and climate resiliency.

Tammie is a Utah native and a graduate from the University of Utah with a degree in Organizational Communication. Her life experiences have helped deepen her commitment to preserving the delicate balance of Utah’s beautiful landscape and abundant resources with advanced, state-side clean energy and fuels that are economically and ecologically sound, renewable, and ultimately sustainable. 

She lives and works in Salt Lake City near her family and the splendor of Utah’s natural spaces. As often as she can, Tammie disappears to her off-grid mountain cabin in the Uintas.
