  • Carbon-Free Electricity

Dhroovaa is an associate with RMI’s Carbon-Free Electricity Program, where he works on the Global Coal Transition Initiative. His work provides insights on and analyzes innovative financial mechanisms to help advance an equitable coal-to-clean transition.


Before joining RMI, Dhroovaa was a senior consultant in Guidehouse’s energy, sustainability, and infrastructure practice, where he focused on quantifying physical climate risk to utilities and developing investment plans to harden utility assets against climate hazards.

As a master’s student at Carnegie Mellon, Dhroovaa focused on low-carbon electric power and energy policy — leading graduate research projects focused on low-carbon energy potential in Rwanda and viability of bus fleet electrification in Allegheny County. As an undergraduate, he researched the greenhouse gas impact of Pittsburgh’s urban food system and interned with Pacific Gas & Electric’s asset management team.

In his spare time, you can catch Dhroovaa training for the long jump or listening to podcasts about the Phoenix Suns.
