Loretta Prencipe combines her unique experience in energy, sustainability, technology and issues management to provide clients with strategic communications counsel.

As an attorney and former reporter, Loretta has more than 15 years of experience designing and executing PR campaigns that have helped shape the careers of thought leaders in energy, environmental tech, technology and manufacturing. She has worked closely with associations, energy leaders and corporate executives to help them craft stories the market and policymakers want — or need — to hear.

Known for her work to put SunEdison on the map and for driving a “hearts + minds” campaign at the U.S. Department of Energy during the Recovery Act, Loretta prides herself on identifying big opportunities for her clients, and making sure she has the right talent at the right time to get the job done. Her experience includes working with Bracewell, Battelle, SunEdison, Schott, Vericool, Hannon Armstrong, Nationwide Energy Partners, National Grid, Singapore Building and Construction Authority, and other organizations. Her energy experience includes working in solar, geothermal, energy efficiency, resiliency and sustainable infrastructure, LNG, CNG and carbon capture.

A graduate of the law school at George Mason University, Loretta has leveraged her legal background to represent major law firms and to work with companies to successfully avoid being legislated out of business. Prior to joining RH Strategic, she led the energy, manufacturing and sustainability practice at Makovsky Communications.

I’m proudest of…

The impact I have made beyond D.C. – from helping define the solar market as we know it today to building schools in Nepal to creating opportunities for innovators through game-changing media placements.
