In Noah Long’s first project with NRDC, he helped initiate a successful campaign to protect the wildlife, wildlands, and communities of Chile’s Patagonia from damages associated with large-scale hydrological development. Since then, he has worked to advance policies for deploying renewable energy, increasing energy efficiency, and cleaning up dirty power plants. Currently Long manages NRDC’s clean-energy initiatives in western states. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Bowdoin College, a master's in international development and environmental policy from the London School of Economics, and a JD from Stanford Law School. He is based in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
