Jane Hotchkiss

Energy for the Common Good


Jane Hotchkiss has spent 30 years working on climate solutions in energy. In the 1980s she brought together California regulators and CEOs to discuss ways of building markets for the renewable industry. Jane was the first renewables advocate at Conservation Law Foundation and the Land and Water Fund of the Rockies. She developed a field of national anti-coal campaigns, as co-founder of the Clean Air Task Force (CATF). As a climate consultant to PG&E on the Madison Wind Project and their national energy team, she was the only external consultant to the first utility wind project in the East. Looking for a solution supportive of expanding renewable and climate energy solution markets brought Jane to the promise of fusion energy. The need for fusion’s potential steady state, safe, zero carbon energy supply had never been clearer. Its ability to balance renewable grids and disrupt fossil’s hold on electricity, meet industrial needs, and even produce transportation fuels, is compelling. Fusion was the natural place to utilize her energy market experience and climate knowledge. With ECG she now dedicates her expertise to building a roadmap for fusion as a regulated, accepted, and welcomed green commercial choice.

    Energy for the Common Good | Getting Ready to Put Fusion to Work

    Presentation Energy Transition/Climate & Sustainability
    Fusion is nearing...and we are preparing for its welcome into the national and global energy mix. In parallel with the technological developments, we drive public education, informing political actions and the policies and budgets they determine, opening doors to public and private funding, building coalitions of climate, environmental, justice, workforce, and green energy stakeholders, and engaging regulatory and licensing frameworks. We will discuss the timeline of actions, engagements, and outreach behind fusion’s green light.
