Hannah Kornfeld, AICP

I am focused on meaningful climate action and equitable advancement of clean energy solutions. I manage and lead many of Ascent’s climate action and adaptation planning efforts. I seek to advance our ability to assist local agencies with some of their most challenging climate change projects while building a team of dedicated changemakers and problem solvers. I consider myself a clean energy nerd, getting into the weeds of ever-evolving California climate regulation to help craft first-of-their-kind solutions for our clients.

I am always looking to connect with fellow clean energy and climate champions throughout California and Vermont (the state I call home) and have done so through programs like the Clean Energy Leadership Institute and the Vermont Climate Catalyst Leadership Program. In addition to helping cities and counties, I have volunteered my time to assist school districts in New England with developing school-specific climate action plans. When I’m not brainstorming climate solutions, I enjoy spending time outside: being active on the trails or soaking up the rays alongside my dog. I am forever in search of the perfect maple creemee (a Vermont delicacy).
