Lisa R. Jaccoma is a senior marketing professional whose career has been dedicated to marketing emerging technologies, leading teams in shaping new markets and communicating the benefits of innovation. She has a Master’s of Science in Environmental Policy with a thesis on utility-scale solar policy and market development in the U.S.

"From a marketing and communications standpoint, 2011 should have been a wake-up call for the cleantech industry in the U.S. We are getting our collective butts kicked in the national conversation.
