Jennifer Ramsey

NREL's Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center
Project Leader

Jennifer has 20 years of diverse and comprehensive experience in progressive roles within the defense and energy industries. Over the past few years, she's had the opportunity to support the clean energy ecosystem through programs that connect entrepreneurs with a wide range of resources that includes education, mentorship, accelerator and incubator programs, and the investment community.

Currently, Jennifer works in the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado. She serves as Program Manager for the DOE EERE Lab-Corps Pilot Program and as Manager of the Colorado Center for Renewable Energy Economic Development (CREED) Program. In her role with Lab-Corps, Jennifer leads a team of laboratory and industry partners to develop and deliver a curriculum that enables laboratory researchers to gain access to direct market feedback and start to define the limits of the gap that exists between the readiness of their technology in its current state, and the point at which a commercial partner is ready to pick it up and take it to market, and ultimately realize a viable path to commercialization.

Prior joining NREL in 2009, Jennifer served as the International Agreements Administrator and Export Compliance Coordinator for MPRI, Inc., an L-3 Communications Company, in Alexandria, Virginia. In her previous life, she was a Sergeant in the U.S. Army with assignments that included First Armored Division in Germany, Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo, and the Office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the Pentagon.
