The Center for Resource Solutions (CRS), a San Francisco-based nonprofit, has announced that Jan Hamrin, president of CRS, was honored by the California Energy Commission (CEC) for her outstanding leadership in shaping state, national and international renewable energy markets. A CEC resolution states that "the California Energy Commission acknowledges and thanks Dr. Jan Hamrin for her 25 years of exemplary contributions to furthering renewable energy development."

Hamrin served from 1979 to 1980 as the manager of Solar Programs for the California Energy Commission, working closely with local governments to develop solar energy programs and promote solar power as a viable generation resource.

In addition, she was the founder and executive director of the Independent Energy Producers Association in the 1980s. In 1997, Hamrin founded CRS and was instrumental in developing the Green-e Renewable Energy Certification Program, which resulted in more than 5.2 million MWh of Green-e certified renewable energy sold in 2005.

She recently mobilized a key group of renewable energy experts to assess how to accelerate and expand the current California Renewable Portfolio Standard and related programs to achieve the governor's goal of meeting 33% of statewide electric power supply with renewable energy by 2020.

"I’ve been very fortunate to have found an industry where I've felt committed and challenged over the last few decades," Hamrin says. "I share this resolution with the other renewable energy innovators I've met along the way."
