Jenny Kelvington named Executive Director for Energy

 The N.C. Department of Environmental Quality announced today that Jenny Kelvington has been named Executive Director for Energy, effective Dec. 1. In that role, she will lead DEQ’s newly formed Energy Group, which is responsible for developing policy that protects the environment and promotes clean, reliable and affordable energy resources.

Kelvington has been the acting director since the Energy Group was created in November. She joined DEQ in 2007 and most recently served as Senior Policy Advisor with an emphasis on energy strategy. She will continue to advise the secretary on energy policy, support the Energy Policy Council and the Outer Continental Shelf Governors Coalition, and serve as North Carolina’s point of contact with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management for offshore energy.  Prior to joining DEQ, Kelvington worked as an environmental engineer at IBM.  She graduated summa cum laude from N.C. State University with a degree in chemical engineering and is a professional engineer.  

The Energy Group was established to reflect the greater role energy strategy plays in DEQ and the state. It is comprised of the Energy and N.C. Geological Survey sections and includes initiatives such as the Oil & Gas Program, energy efficiency, and weatherization.
