The Coalition for Renewable Natural Gas (RNG Coalition) recently named its manager of Legislative and Regulatory Affairs in Sacramento, Calif.

Nina Kapoor will look to bolster the RNG Coalition's advocacy and education efforts on behalf of the North American RNG industry in California and on the West Coast, according to the coalition.

Before joining the RNG Coalition, Kapoor provided strategic planning and public affairs consulting as principal of Kapoor Consulting. Prior to that she served as vice president of Legislative Affairs at the California Forestry Association (CFA), the statewide trade association that represents California’s forestry sector. There, she was instrumental in leading key stakeholder coalitions and coordinating strategic media campaigns for the association.

Kapoor also previously represented a number of high-profile energy and transportation clients at KP Public Affairs, a lobbying firm in Sacramento.

The RNG Coalition represents the renewable natural gas industry in North America, including companies that produce, or otherwise support production and distribution of biogas-derived renewable natural gas, which is a domestic, clean, low-carbon, and renewable source of power, heat and fuel that makes up the predominant share of cellulosic biofuel in North America.
