Director, Western Region, Climate & Clean Energy Program
For over a decade, Noah Long has worked to advance policies for deploying renewable energy, increasing energy efficiency, and advancing cleaner cars and electric vehicles. His work includes a focus on creating a fast, just, and sustainable transition to clean energy to address the climate crisis in the west. In Long’s first project with NRDC, he helped initiate a successful campaign to protect the wildlife, wildlands, and communities of Chile’s Patagonia from damages associated with large-scale hydrological development. Currently, Long co-directs NRDC’s western clean energy and climate policy initiatives with Peter Miller. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Bowdoin College, a master's in international development and environmental policy from the London School of Economics, and a J.D. from Stanford Law School. He is based in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
