We are pleased to announce that Stephen Harper, Global Director of Environment and Energy Policy at Intel Corporation, has joined the Energy Foundation’s board of directors.

Stephen’s experience in shaping environmental, energy, and sustainability strategies for companies and government agencies will be valuable to inform Energy Foundation strategies.

“Our education and analysis work to build big markets for clean energy technology requires leadership in both the public and private sectors,” said Eric Heitz, Energy Foundation CEO and Co-founder. “Stephen’s experience and guidance on all of these fronts will help us achieve our mission to promote reliable and affordable renewable energy and energy efficiency.”

In the U.S., Stephen recently led Intel’s release of its updated climate policy statement, which included an endorsement of controlling carbon emissions from existing power plants. In China, he’s been exploring ways to green supply chains, alongside other leading companies like Apple and Walmart.

Outside Intel, Stephen serves on the board of both the Center for Environmental Policy at American University and the Chesapeake Conservancy. Prior to joining Intel he served in senior positions at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, ICF Consulting, and the California State Coastal Conservancy.
