U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
Director, Climate Protection Partnerships Division
Kathleen Hogan is the Director of the Climate Protection Partnerships Division of the US Environmental Protection Agency. There she manages many of the Agency’s industry partnership programs designed to remove market barriers and reduce greenhouse gas emissions while saving businesses and consumers money.
These programs include the EPA’s flagship voluntary program, ENERGY STAR, which offers energy efficiency solutions across the residential, commercial and industrial sectors; partnership programs to promote renewable energy and combined heat and power; Climate Leaders, a corporate leadership program for addressing climate change; and a State partnership designed to promote clean energy policies with state decision-makers.
Earlier efforts included the design and implementation of partnership programs with the U.S. natural gas, waste management, and livestock industries to reduce methane emissions, the U.S. primary aluminum industry to reduce emissions of perfluorocarbons, and a joint effort with the Russian natural gas industry.
Hogan has been with the EPA since 1989. Prior to EPA, she worked in consulting and for a water resources planning commission for the Potomac River. She received her doctorate in systems analysis and environmental engineering from the Johns Hopkins University and a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Bucknell University.
