Shannon Angielski has devoted her career to developing and advocating for clean energy and carbon management policies and federal funding for projects. Shannon has a particular focus on the decarbonization of hydrogen, recognizing early on its significance to the success of the energy transition and potential to cut across multiple industries. She has worked to raise awareness and build support among key stakeholders, including founding and leading the Clean Hydrogen Future Coalition.
Shannon also has a wealth of experience working on carbon capture, utilization, and sequestration (CCUS) policies. Her clients include members of the electric power and industrial sectors, equipment manufacturers, technology developers, trade associations and labor unions, on whose behalf she develops, implements, and manages advocacy strategies. Shannon’s efforts have frequently resulted in the successful enactment of key legislation and federal funding. Examples include the Section 45Q carbon sequestration tax credits, the new Section 45V hydrogen production tax credit that was included in the Inflation Reduction Act, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) clean hydrogen hubs provision, and the IIJA CCS programs.
Shannon serves as the Executive Director of the Carbon Utilization Research Council (CURC) and as the President of the Clean Hydrogen Future Coalition. In these leadership roles, Shannon develops and supports the coalitions’ federal policy initiatives and advocates for their goals. She also serves as the coalitions’ spokesperson before federal policymakers and the media.
Shannon is a co-coordinator of Van Ness Feldman's Government Advocacy and Public Policy practice and leads its Federal Funding and Grant practices.
