Holmes Hummel

Founder & Executive DirectorClean Energy Works

Washington, DC


Dear Holmes:

Advancing equitable building decarbonization through inclusive utility investments speaks to the core of my values. As a strategic thinker devoted to transformative climate solutions, I was thrilled to discover the Senior Associate, Building Decarbonization role with Clean Energy Works.

For a decade, Clean Energy Works has been a pioneer in catalyzing a just energy transition. Your mission to steer essential upgrades and efficiency investment to the communities that need it most deeply resonates with me. Throughout my academic and professional career, I’ve remained committed to sustainability, justice and community empowerment, and therefore, I’m compelled by the opportunity to accelerate adoption of inclusive programs uplifting marginalized households.

Of the various responsibilities listed in this role that excite me, I’m eager for the opportunity to tap into my passion to center equity in policy design while potentially supporting the Just Energy Transition team. With 3+ years experience driving high-impact initiatives through policy research, program development, and cross-sector collaboration, I'm prepared to excel as Senior Associate. Of the various projects I’ve led and contributed to in my career, some of the experiences that I would draw upon in this role include:

  • Clean Energy Policy Analysis: Conducted equity-focused assessments to advance institutional progress and shape actionable guidelines for national (local, state, federal) energy programs. 

  • Stakeholder Engagement: Cultivated trusted connections with dozens of clients and partners across government, academia, nonprofits, industry, grassroots coalitions.

  • Workshop Facilitation: Convened events engaging diverse stakeholders to co-create climate solutions, exercising project execution and presentation skills.

  • Program Coordination: Developed programming elevating marginalized voices, and pioneered an environmental justice education series reaching 100+ colleagues.

I would relish the chance to support Clean Energy Works’ mission expanding access to clean energy upgrades. This role strikes a balance in that I know I have just as much to offer as I will have the opportunity to learn about. Let’s work together to steer essential investment to the homes that need it most. The future of sustainable communities and housing justice depends on it.

Thank you for considering my application. I look forward to the possibility of contributing to Clean Energy Work’s mission and discussing how I can accelerate an inclusive transition. 


Sincerely,


Camille Minns
