Elana Knopp

Manager, Content & Communications

My primary responsibilities include leading content development, creating thought leadership pieces with Edison team members and industry experts, and crafting client engagement & communications strategies.

I’ve been an investigative reporter for most of my career, covering New Jersey politics, social justice issues, education, and the environment. I also served as the communications director for an environmental organization in New Jersey. Most recently, I served as a renewable energy reporter covering a lot of the projects and initiatives that encompass Edison’s work. In fact, I DID cover Edison’s work!

I am the recipient of several journalism awards, including from the New Jersey Press Association (NJPA) and the Garden State Journalists Association. I have also been recognized by Montclair University’s Center for Cooperative Media, featured in Politico’s New Jersey Playbook, and have served as a guest lecturer at Rutgers University.

A successful journalist must have exceptional reporting and writing skills, a rapport with people from all walks of life, mega street smarts, superhuman tenacity and VERY thick skin. I’d like to think I’m bringing that to my work here at Edison!
