About the Statewide Energy Efficiency Best Practices Coordinator
The goal of this position is to coordinate with California local governments and relevant agencies to compile, share, and receive feedback on information that helps local governments achieve near- and long-term EE savings in alignment with State climate and energy goals.
Angie Hacker has nearly 20 years of public, private and non-profit experience serving communities in the areas of sustainability, energy, and climate change, primarily in California. Prior to becoming CEO and Principal Consultant of Prosper Sustainably, she served as Energy and Sustainability Division Chief for the County of Santa Barbara. In that role, she oversaw local, state, federal, and IOU-funded energy and climate initiatives and participated in state regulatory efforts. Her areas of expertise include designing innovative local/regional solutions, communicating a strategic vision, pursuing policy and regulatory opportunities, obtaining resources, building local capacity, leveraging cross-sector partnerships, and engaging stakeholders. She enjoys managing complex projects and datasets to achieve results within multi-agency, political and bureaucratic environments. She earned a Master of Public Administration from New York University.
“I am very excited to have accepted this opportunity to support impact-makers throughout California doing the critical work of moving our communities towards a sustainable energy future,” said Angie. “I am very familiar with the challenges communities face on the ground in aligning resources with needs, especially in a landscape where changing policies, technologies, budgets, and climate impacts require us to rise to new levels of creativity and vigilance.”
Angie is particularly looking forward to providing local governments easily-accessible technical assistance and peer-learning opportunities focused on real-world ways to sustain, replicate, and expand upon effective local energy and climate programs.
