Lecture

Reducing transportation emissions is critical to climate change mitigation. Ambitious climate actions are needed to fully meet the emissions reductions outlined in the Paris Agreement. Britney will navigate transportation mitigation efforts at EPA and the current challenges to reducing CO2 in the transportation sector. Also, the role we all must play in future-focused thinking in advancing clean transportation technology options while reducing GHG emissions for real transformational change. This includes electrification, shared mobility, autonomous vehicles, and more.

Britney McCoy is the Director of the Climate Analysis and Strategies Center within the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Transportation and Air Quality (OTAQ). In this role she is responsible for leading OTAQ's future-focused thinking regarding climate pollutants and advanced clean transportation technology options to achieve significant greenhouse gas reductions from transportation sources in the medium and long term. Britney specializes in advanced clean technology opportunities in transportation, diesel engine after-treatment retrofits, EPA’s Clean School Bus Program, and black carbon emissions in the Arctic.

As the Director of Educational Experiences for STEMLY, a nonprofit advocacy organization, she works to create bridges to STEM fields for underrepresented student populations in Washington, D.C. Her life’s motto is “I’m simply trying to create some meaning out of life while improving the environment and changing lives at the same time.” She holds a Ph.D. in Engineering & Public Policy and a M.S. in Environmental Management and Science from Carnegie Mellon University, and a B.A. in Engineering and Government & Law from Lafayette College.
