Electric Vehicle Specialist, Electrification Coalition
Sarah Fischer is an Electric Vehicle Specialist for the Electrification Coalition. Her work is focused on supporting the Climate Mayor’s EV Purchasing Collaborative in facilitating fleet electrification across the country. She is responsible for guiding public fleets through the transition to electric vehicles by providing best practices, vehicle analysis, and technical expertise. Sarah has worked in energy and alternative fuels since 2015, most recently completing a Public Allies AmeriCorps term serving at the City of Cincinnati’s Office of Environment and Sustainability (OES). At OES, she helped implement an energy management system for 400+ municipal utility accounts and assisted in the creation of an electric vehicle educational program called EV Cincy. Prior to that, she also worked in LEED for Homes consulting, nonprofit communications and event planning, and energy efficiency program management. Sarah was drawn to the energy and transportation fields due to their large carbon footprint and disproportionate impact on disadvantaged communities. She hopes to continue working towards cleaner air and more equitable transportation access for all people.

She currently serves as the Communications and Membership Chair for Keep Cincinnati Beautiful’s Young Professionals group and is on the Emerging Professionals Committee for USGBC Ohio.
