Ali Rotatori

  • Urban Transformation

As a manager with the Urban Transformation program, Ali provides direct technical assistance to help cities in the United States and India meet their clean energy goals.

Since joining RMI in 2016, Ali has worked on programs that unlock and accelerate access to renewable energy markets for non-utility buyers. Through her work on the Business Renewables Center (now Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance) and the City Renewables Accelerator, she’s indirectly supported over 200 corporations and cities that have collectively procured over 10 gigawatts of renewables in the past 5 years. In the past 2 years, she has directly supported procurement of over 200 megawatts of renewables by US cities through a combination of direct technical assistance, cohort-based support, and the creation of technical tools and resources for city staff.


Ali started off 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 make progress toward their clean energy goals.
