Elizabeth Noll is a senior policy advisor in Holland & Knight's Washington, D.C., office. Ms. Noll has spent more than a decade refining her energy policy and technical skill set to achieve measurable outcomes. She has worked at multiple levels of government from federal to state and local, as well as in the nonprofit environmental and private sector energy space. Most recently, Ms. Noll served as the deputy assistant secretary for House Congressional Affairs at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) for the Biden-Harris Administration, where she worked to develop and secure no less than three historic climate and clean energy bills and has an in-depth understanding of how the department is preparing to implement key provisions.
Prior to joining the administration, Ms. Noll worked as lead consultant on many challenging policy issues to addressing climate change. She led the development of an issue-based campaign specifically focused on addressing barriers to entry for clean energy in the Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland (PJM) wholesale electricity markets.
Ms. Noll has long advocated for increased clean energy innovation budgets at the DOE, particularly in working closely with allied thought leaders across the political spectrum to defend and grow federal funding for energy efficiency and renewable energy research by more than $1 billion in the face of an adversarial administration. During her time at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), she developed deep knowledge in federal mechanisms for advancing clean energy policy, including federal budgets, clean energy tax credits and minimum efficiency standards for appliances and equipment.
In addition, Ms. Noll has served on federal advisory committees and testified before the U.S. House of Representatives' Committee on Energy and Commerce on energy efficiency policies.
