CEN further positions itself as a clean energy policy leader with new hire

The Conservative Energy Network (CEN), a coalition of 21 state-based conservative clean energy and energy efficiency organizations, today announced the hire of Landon Stevens as the organization’s first director of policy and advocacy.

Prior to joining the network, Stevens held numerous positions within the energy space, serving as a policy advisor for two commissioners with the Arizona Corporation Commission and as a policy director for Strata and the Institute for Energy Research.

“As a Network, we’ve rapidly expanded over the past few years, along with the need for market-driven state-level clean energy policy,” said Mark Pischea, CEO and president of CEN. “We provide conservative clean energy thought leadership across the country, but most importantly we serve as a resource for our state teams as they work alongside policymakers and stakeholders in their state capitols. Landon Stevens has the conservative political and energy policy credentials necessary to help our state teams’ efforts to advance conservative energy solutions across the nation.”

In his role with the Arizona Corporation Commission, Stevens was responsible for advising commissioners and crafting and passing policy related to public utility services throughout the state.

“As a passionate advocate for market-based clean energy policy, I’ve spent the majority of my career consulting within the energy sector,” said Stevens. “I’m excited to join the CEN team, and contribute to the Network’s conservative clean energy movement. CEN’s state leaders are working to implement critical policies impacting the future of our local, state, and national economies, and I look forward to supporting them in their efforts to advance solutions that bolster state economies through increased market competition.”

Stevens completed his undergraduate work in communications at Brigham Young University, earned his Master’s in Public Policy from George Mason University and received a certification in Regulatory Analysis from Penn Law.
