BACKGROUND

Before joining RMI, Brett worked at Energy Solutions, an employee-owned consulting firm focused on creating large-scale environmental impacts through market-based solutions. Brett’s core practice areas at Energy Solutions included energy and emissions modeling, microgrids, building energy design and simulation, and bus fleet electrification. Brett lead analytical work on a number of projects funded by the California Energy Commission investigating pathways to help California meet its aggressive energy and climate goals. Prior to Energy Solutions, Brett spent 10 years splitting his time as a contractor working on residential new construction and remodel projects, and as field faculty teaching mountaineering courses for NOLS.
