Greg Thomson

Development Director

Greg rejoins the Clean Coalition following a prior stint as Director of Programs and leading foundational Clean Coalition efforts, including the establishment of the Community Microgrid initiative and developing methodologies for optimizing high penetrations of local solar within the distribution grid. Greg has also served as Director of Product Management at Sunrun, helping establish a Virtual Power Plant (VPP) platform to aggregate solar+storage into Solar Microgrids that provide both customer and grid benefits. Prior to transitioning into clean energy, Greg served in executive roles for multiple technology startups that achieved successful industry-wide deployments and investment outcomes, including via an IPO and a major acquisition.  Greg’s role as Vice President of Advanced Product Development at Comcast prepared him for the Monitoring, Communications, and Control (MC2) elements that are fundamental to Solar Microgrids and Community Microgrids.  Greg’s academic background in the arts has combined with highly technical work experience to achieve impressive results that include major grant awards for the Clean Coalition from the California Energy Commission (CEC) and a New York Prize grant.
