The American Clean Power Association has announced that Jason Grumet will serve as the organization’s next chief executive officer.

He fills a vacancy at ACP left by Heather Zichal, who announced on Oct. 20 that she was leaving to become the global head of sustainability at JPMorgan Chase.

Gumet takes over ACP at a time when the clean clean energy industry recently notched two of its most significant legislative wins. His work will focus on helping the industry realize the opportunities within the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act.
“I couldn’t be more excited for Jason to take the reins of ACP at this pivotal time in its journey,” said Leo Moreno, president of AES Clean Energy and incoming hair of the ACP board. “Jason’s depth of experience in energy policy, his bold leadership and strong relationships across the political spectrum make him the perfect candidate to lead and grow our organization.”
