Susannah Hatch

Director of Clean Energy Policy

Susannah joined the Environmental League of Massachusetts (ELM) in January 2020. Her work focuses on clean energy policy, coalitions, and advocacy. In this role, Susannah serves as the Regional Lead for the New England for Offshore Wind (NE4OSW) coalition, which ELM launched in 2020. NE4OSW is a broad-based coalition of over 100 organizations committed to combating climate change by increasing the supply of clean energy to our regional grid through more procurements of responsibly developed offshore wind. 

Prior to joining ELM, Susannah worked in volunteer management at the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC), a regional conservation and recreation organization. At AMC, Susannah facilitated alignment and effectiveness across the organization’s volunteers, staff, and members. She served as a liaison, partner, and adviser to AMC’s volunteer chapter organizations and focused on organizational development, capacity building, strategic planning, and project management. In addition to her volunteer management responsibilities, she served on AMC’s Board of Directors strategic visioning committee, and led and facilitated its community engagement and analysis. 

Susannah holds a Bachelors in French and International Studies from Colby College. Her passion for clean energy and environmental policy stems from her interest in sustainability and climate policy, and she is delighted to bring her experience in capacity building and community engagement to ELM and NE4OSW in support of their goals to drive ambitious state policies for clean energy and climate action.
