    Minnesota is on a clean, renewable energy path, already growing over 57,000 clean energy jobs in both urban and rural areas of the state. Since most energy decisions are made at the state (not the federal) level, there are many ways Minnesotans can influence energy policy. J. Drake Hamilton, Science Policy Director for Fresh Energy (a nonprofit organization whose mission for over 25 years has been to shape and drive realistic, visionary energy policies that benefit all), will inspire and energize you to see the future of renewable energy in Minnesota and what each of us can contribute! She recently led a panel of Minnesota business, nonprofit, and government leaders at the Bonn Climate Summit, showcasing what Minnesota has accomplished and what needs to be done to further our climate and energy goals. She was also invited to the White House by President Obama to highlight the accomplishments of Minnesota.

    J. Drake Hamilton is an expert in climate and energy policy at Fresh Energy where her responsibilities include scientific analysis and policy development of clean energy solutions that will maximize economic opportunities. She gives more than 50 presentations each year to businesses and civic organizations. Her frequent media appearances include television, Minnesota Public Radio, and business press as well as The Washington Post and New York Times. J. earned undergraduate and graduate degrees in physical geography from Dartmouth College and the University of Minnesota, with an emphasis on climatology and water resources. She was formerly an assistant professor at The George Washington University. She ranks among the top 12 climate communicators internationally and was named “one of Minnesota’s 100 influential people who make thing happen” by Minneapolis-St. Paul Magazine.
