Alexa Thompson

Senior Associate
  • Climate Aligned Industries

Alexa is a Senior Associate in RMI’s Climate-Aligned Industries Program, where she leads the policy function of the Mission Possible Partnership (MPP). The MPP is a coalition working to decarbonize the world’s harder-to-abate sectors, with a focus on steel, cement, chemicals, aluminum, shipping, aviation, and heavy-duty road transport. These sectors account for 30 percent of global emissions today, and they require cross-value chain approaches involving producers, customers, capital providers, and policymakers to move toward net zero.


Before joining RMI, Alexa was Head of Strategy for Australian cleantech startup RayGen, a developer of solar power and long-duration storage technologies. In that role, Alexa guided product and market strategy, raised capital, developed early customer relationships, and generally rode the exhilarating roller coaster of leading a cleantech hardware startup.

Prior to RayGen, Alexa worked at McKinsey & Company, serving clients across multiple sectors in Australia and New Zealand.
