Welcoming Aimee Barnes to Gridworks

January 12, 2021




This month Gridworks was pleased to welcome Aimee Barnes to our Board of Directors.

Aimee brings over 15 years’ experience in climate, energy, and sustainability, spanning the state, federal and international levels, and the public, private, and non-profit sectors. She currently leads her own consulting practice, Hua Nani Partners, and serves as a senior advisor at the California-China Climate Institute, which was established to spur further climate action and dialogue between California and China. 

Aimee previously served as Senior Advisor to California Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr., Deputy Secretary for Border and Intergovernmental Relations at the California Environmental Protection Agency, and was a partner at Allotrope Partners.

I am honored and delighted to join the Gridworks team. There has never been a more critical moment for progress towards the decarbonization of our economy, and Gridworks provides critical convening, expertise, and support to governments on the ground to take that decarbonization goal from aspiration to reality.Aimee Barnes

With Aimee’s appointment, Gridworks achieves another important goal: women now make up the majority of our leadership positions.

Aimee is taking over for Anthony Eggert who matriculated from Gridworks after 5 years of service. Anthony, we thank you for your many contributions and wish you the best!
