Chittum replaces Mike Kotyk at NW Natural Renewables, which focuses on providing renewable natural gas (RNG) to a variety of sectors.

“We know how important renewable natural gas is to addressing climate change and supporting companies’ decarbonization goals,” said Justin Palfreyman, president of NW Natural Holdings. “Anna has a vast knowledge of the renewable energy landscape and has successfully executed RNG and decarbonization strategies. We are very excited for her to lead this team and pursue opportunities for NW Natural Renewables.”

Chittum was a Fulbright Fellow in Denmark, where she researched local district heat planning and the use of CHP to balance variable wind generation. She holds degrees from Gonzaga University and Columbia University.
