Mira started her career as an environmentalist in the mines of Africa. From there, she pivoted to big corporate, to the industries which had formed the bedrock of the carbon economy and spent over a decade in the chemical, utility, and oil & gas sectors where she built clean energy business lines. She was on the ground floor of building a battery manufacturing plant for Dow Chemical, a solar and wind portfolio for NRG Energy, and a home energy business for Shell. Most recently, Mira was the head of residential power for Shell.
Mira won the 2019 C3E Award from the US Department of Energy, recognizing her contributions to the field of clean energy. She holds a BS from Oberlin College and an MBA from the University of California at Berkeley. She is an amateur surfer and skateboarder. You can usually find her hiking with her family in the redwood groves near her home in Northern California.
