Renewable Northwest Project Announces Three New Hires

Regional Clean Energy Advocacy Group Expands Policy and Analyst Teams

Portland, Ore. – Renewable Northwest Project, a leading regional advocacy group for renewable energy, today announced the hire of three new staff members. The new employees bring added talent to the organization’s policy and analyst teams.
 
Jeff Fox joined as Policy Advocate in the Montana region. As the organization’s first fulltime Montana-based employee, Fox bolsters on-the-ground advocacy work within the state. A native Montanan, Fox has rich experience, from serving as a wilderness ranger in Colorado and Wyoming to outreach coordinator at The Wilderness Society in Washington, D.C. He worked on the Montana Legacy Project, a $520 million dollar conservation purchase of 320,000 acres of private timberlands threatened by development and fragmentation. Recently, he worked to organize business support for clean energy, and he currently volunteers on the Policy Committee of the Montana Renewable Energy Association. Fox holds a B.A. from Western Washington University.
 
Lauren Prince was selected as Policy Advocate to specialize in state-by-state policy efforts and collaboration with environmental and community groups on project siting issues. Prince brings a wealth of environmental advocacy experience and clean energy focus to her role. She previously worked on numerous political campaigns and supported the launch of Al Gore’s The Climate Project. Prince also assisted with conservation efforts in rural Madagascar with World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Prince earned a B.A. at the University of Oregon.
 
Jimmy Lindsay was hired as Power Systems Analyst and brings strong technical research skills and experience to the team. Lindsay recently returned from Stockholm, Sweden, where he fulfilled a Fulbright Scholarship studying renewable energy engineering at the Royal Institute of Technology. He previously worked as a NASA Space Grant fellow. A returning member of the Renewable Northwest Project team, Lindsay worked as an intern advocating for responsible operation and planning of power systems. Jimmy holds a B.A. from Bowdoin College.
