Jason Grumet is the new CEO of American Clean Power (ACP). As CEO, Grumet works with ACP's nearly 800 member companies to provide families and businesses with affordable, reliable energy made in the U.S. and powered by American workers.

Grumet is respected on both sides of the aisle for his innovative approach to impacting public policy. He joins ACP from the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC), which he founded and ran as president for 15 years. Jason brings that same vision and passion to ACP, building on the passage of historic legislation to accelerate clean energy innovation and deployment.

Prior to founding BPC, Grumet led the bipartisan National Commission on Energy Policy. These experiences shaped his view that the national interest is best served when broad perspectives are brought together to craft durable national policy.

“There’s never been a more dynamic or optimistic moment for the U.S. and global energy policy,” Jason writes for ACP. “The imperative to simultaneously grow and decarbonize our economy while strengthening national security is the defining challenge of the next 30 years.

“In my career, I’ve tried to do two things: to develop real climate solutions and build the durable, bipartisan policy necessary to implement and sustain them. This is the moment where we have to join these two commitments to secure the promise of the remarkable legislation that passed last year and work together to make it happen.”
