Jared Duval serves as Executive Director of Energy Action Network (EAN), a nonprofit organization that supports a network of over 200 members and public partners across Vermont. The shared mission of EAN members is to achieve Vermont’s 90% renewable by 2050 total energy commitment and to significantly reduce Vermont’s greenhouse gas emissions in ways that create a more just, thriving, and sustainable future for Vermonters.
EAN, the nonprofit organization, serves its network and the State of Vermont by acting as a neutral, trusted convener of diverse stakeholders, including hosting an Annual Network Summit. EAN also collects and analyzes data for its members and the State of Vermont to enable evidence-based and data- informed policy making and program design, most prominently with its Annual Progress Report for Vermont on Energy, Emissions, the Economy, and Equity.
Jared has led EAN since 2017. Previously, from 2014 to 2017, he served as Economic Development Director at the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development, where he was responsible for providing business support to working lands and green economy businesses and helped to guide millions of dollars of state and federal investments in sustainable economic development via the Northern Border Regional Commission, the Working Lands Enterprise Initiative, and the Clean Energy Development Fund. Part of the ninth generation of his family to call Vermont home, Jared grew up in the Upper Connecticut River Valley and now lives with his family in Montpelier.
Jared also currently serves as Co-Chair of the Clean Energy Development Fund and is a member of the Board of the Public Assets Institute. He holds degrees from Princeton University (Master in Public Affairs – Domestic Policy, 2014), University of Cambridge (MPhil, Modern Society and Global Transformations, 2012), and Wheaton College, Massachusetts (Bachelor of Arts, Summa Cum Laude – Economics and Political Science, 2005).
