Andrew Allee

Senior Associate
  • Global South

Andrew is a Senior Associate in RMI’s Global South Program. As the component lead for the Agriculture-Energy Innovation Accelerator, Andrew is leading pilot projects to prove and scale productive uses of minigrid electricity in Nigerian agriculture. He also supports sub-Saharan Africa’s growing minigrid sector through data analysis and modeling, which has included projects to predict customer electricity demand and model minigrid-powered EVs.

Background

Andrew received his Ph.D. from the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College in 2021. His graduate work reframed the climate challenge as an opportunity to rebuild energy systems to benefit those who are harmed by global inequality. He examined this opportunity through two sustainable energy technologies—bioenergy and miniature electricity grids—and published academic work spanning food security, land use, cellulosic ethanol, and rural electrification.
