David Pomerantz has been the executive director of the Energy and Policy Institute since 2016.
Under David’s leadership, EPI has become a leading organization at uncovering the ways that electric and gas utilities have blocked or slowed down the transition from fossil fuels to clean energy, and the ways that they have harmed communities and customers.
David is an expert in how utilities use their political machines to deploy influence, capture regulators, and misinform the public. He’s quoted frequently in the national media on those topics.
Prior to joining EPI, David spent eight years working with Greenpeace to move the electric sector away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy. He previously worked as a reporter for newspapers in Boston and New York City. David lives on Coast Miwok land in the San Francisco Bay Area.
