Andy joined NEEP in March 2020 as Public Policy Associate, a position that works across all of NEEP’s project areas to provide support, guidance, and policy expertise. He became a full-time member of the team after six months serving as an Energy Efficiency Intern. Andy also assists in the management of the Regional Energy Efficiency Database (REED).
Prior to joining NEEP, Andy was the community coach for the successful HeatSmart Arlington campaign, a state-funded community-led marketing and education program seeking to promote the adoption of clean heating and cooling technologies such as air and ground source heat pumps and solar hot water. Andy has continued to offer his expertise to the newly formed HeatSmart Alliance, a group of Massachusetts communities committed to clean heating.
Andy graduated from Clark University with a B.A. (2016) and an M.S. (2017) in Environmental Science and Policy. He focused on renewable energy and energy efficiency, and assembled and monitored rooftop wind turbines as part of a pilot micro-grid project. Andy also brings expertise from his time interning at Bulbs.com, an online light bulb retailer, and the Intentional Endowments Network, a sustainable investing network.
