U.S. Director, Zero-Carbon Fuels
Emily Kent is the U.S. Director for Zero-Carbon Fuels. In that capacity, she leads CATF’s work in the U.S. on public policy, communication and education, and technology and business innovation for zero-carbon fuels—namely, hydrogen and ammonia—with the goals of catalyzing low-emissions hydrogen production and enabling its end-use in new sectors that may require zero-carbon fuels to decarbonize. She joined CATF in 2021, and her work has focused on advancing the organization’s efforts on zero-carbon fuels, transportation decarbonization, and U.S. federal policy advocacy.
Before joining CATF, Emily worked as a consultant at ICF on climate change mitigation projects with the federal government. Her background at ICF was primarily in greenhouse gas analysis and climate change mitigation planning, both domestically and internationally. Emily holds a Master in Public Policy degree from the Harvard Kennedy School and a B.A. in Environmental Policy from Washington University in St. Louis.
