Fresh Energy seeks a charismatic and inspirational leader to serve as its next Executive Director. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to assume leadership of a prominent clean energy and climate policy nonprofit that has a regional impact and national influence during a period of unprecedented federal support for climate action.

For 30 years, Fresh Energy has been speeding Minnesota’s transition to a clean energy economy to ensure that the region enjoys good health, a vibrant economy, and thriving, equitable communities today and for generations to come.

Strong candidates will have a working knowledge of clean energy policy and economy, the nonprofit industry, community and economic development, and climate science, advocacy, and movements.
