Fighting the Good Fight for Renewables on Capitol Hill | Heather Zichal of American Clean Power

The Green Light

From working alongside then Senator John Kerry while fighting for better fuel standards to founding & leading the first ever trade organization to represent the entire cleantech industry, Heather Zichal, CEO of American Clean Power Association (ACP), has a lot to be proud of. Catherine spoke with Heather about her career journey in policy & cleantech; ACP’s 1st anniversary; ACP’s ability to help get the infrastructure bill passed; & the significance of the Build Back Better Act, including a robust plan to transition fossil fuel workers to the cleantech industry.

What’s most impressive about Heather is her humility, never having imagined she would transition from a small town in Iowa to working in the White House, & her dedication to paying it forward in every way she can, including by doubling the women on ACP’s Board.
