Jordan Burns is a consultant with a government affairs and public relations firm located in Richmond, VA. His work primarily focuses on energy and utility policy across all 50 states with an emphasis on transportation electrification.

Before his consulting role, Jordan was an Energy Policy Analyst with the Virginia Department of Energy (Virginia Energy). His experience in state government began when he was a Fellow with the inaugural Virginia Management Fellows (VMF) program, a state-level analogue of the federal Presidential Management Fellows program. During his time with VMF, Jordan rotated through multiple state government agencies which included Virginia’s state energy office and public utility commission. These experiences afforded him knowledge of both the regulatory and policy side of the energy industry.

Prior to his experience in state government, Jordan worked as a federal contractor for the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) in Washington, D.C. Also, while living in D.C., he wrote about climate change and energy security policy for the American Security Project (ASP).

Jordan grew up in Southside Virginia, and received a master’s degree in political science from James Madison University’s European Union Policy Studies program in Florence, Italy.  However, he is a Hokie at heart with a bachelor’s degree from Virginia Tech.
