#2 Lynn Abramson President Clean Energy Business Network
Lynn Abramson is President of the Clean Energy Business Network – the small business voice for the clean energy economy. CEBN enhances opportunities for clean energy providers through policy support, business development, and market and technology education.
CEBN’s 3,000+ members span all 50 U.S. states and more than 350 Congressional districts. These business leaders work across a diverse suite of technologies and services in energy efficiency, renewable energy, natural gas, and other advanced energy and transportation sectors. Lynn leads the CEBN’s efforts to mobilize business voices in support of policy change, leverage case studies and narratives to illustrate the benefits of clean energy to the public and policymakers, and promote industry collaboration and networking.
Lynn previously managed the CEBN at its former home in The Pew Charitable Trusts from July 2013 until its transition to become an independent initiative of the Business Council for Sustainable Energy in May 2017. Before that, she worked in the U.S. Senate as a Senior Legislative Assistant on energy, natural resources, and transportation policy. She earned a B.A. in Biology from Boston University and a Ph.D. in Marine and Atmospheric Sciences from Stony Brook University, where her research on carbon cycle processes spurred her interest in advancing low-carbon energy solutions.
