Sonia serves non-profits, governments and foundations in the areas of climate, energy and transportation policy.  She specializes in work with states to launch successful climate programs and policies. 

 

Previously, Sonia served the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for nearly 30 years, coordinating air quality, energy and climate protection programs.  Based in the Office for Commonwealth Development, she was the state lead in the development of the highly successful Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), a regional cap and trade program for the electric sector.  For nearly four years, Sonia guided the process as one of the three Steering Committee members with primary responsibility for the public stakeholder process, coordination of a multi-state working group and the regional economic analysis.  During that time, she also wrote and developed the first Massachusetts Climate Protection Plan and launched the national Carbon Registry.

 

Previously, Ms. Hamel was Massachusetts Director of Air Policy and Planning for 10 years developing one of the most aggressive air pollution programs in the U.S., with a focus on vehicle emission standards and power plant clean up.  She helped to develop the nation's first carbon regulations was the chief coordinator for the New England Governors' and Eastern Canadian Premiers Climate Action Plan in 2001, a sub-national climate plan and the first international climate agreement in the U.S.   She was instrumental in maintaining clean cars laws in the Commonwealth.  Sonia has worked on climate issues since 1994 when she was appointed to the Presidential Advisory Committee on Transportation and Greenhouse Gas Emissions.  The first 12 years of her career was at the Boston Metropolitan Area at the Central Transportation Planning Staff on environmental issues as an urban planner and public participation coordinator.

 

Her clients have included:  The Georgetown Climate Center, Ceres, The Energy Foundation,  Environmental League of Massachusetts, The British Embassy,  The Union of Concerned Scientists, The New England Clean Energy Council, and numerous state governments including Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Colorado and California.
