Evan Jones is the manager of the Energy Science and Technology Projects for the Energy and Environment Directorate at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.

Mr. Jones oversees a portfolio of over 200 projects with total annual expenditures of over $60M/year in the area of energy security, energy efficiency, renewable energy and electric grid infrastructure. The projects support government and commercial clients.

Mr. Jones joined Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in 1986 and has been involved with developing and demonstrating several chemical process technologies from concept to deployment and commercialization. He lead proposal teams and performed technical sales and marketing to a variety of government and industrial clients. He managed large research and demonstration projects for DOE and DoD clients. He managed technical groups in material science, catalysis, microtechnology and biomass. He was the business leader for one commercialization spin-off and process design and economics manager for another.
