Natural Resources Defense Council
Ralph Cavanagh joined the San Francisco office of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) in 1979 and has worked there ever since. He occasionally teaches energy law and policy at places such as the University of Idaho, Stanford and UC Berkeley, and served for 10 years as a member of the US Secretary of Energy's Advisory Board (1993-2003).
His particular focus over the past 30 years has been the role of electric and natural gas utilities, and the opportunity to transform them into the economy's most important clean energy investors, with special emphasis on energy efficiency and renewable energy.
