Before joining Third Derivative, Ali spent over six years at RMI empowering corporates and cities to achieve their decarbonization goals by combining direct technical assistance, cohort-based support, and development of technical tools and resources. She specializes in city-wide decarbonization strategy and modeling, renewable procurement, and group facilitation and education.

Ali began her career in the clean energy industry at SunEdison, where she honed her technical skills by developing and financing solar projects for local governments, housing authorities, and corporations. When she joined RMI, she took a seat on the other side of the table, helping similar customers understand complex procurement processes and progress toward their clean energy goals.
