Ebun is an Associate at RMI’s New York Office. She is a part of the Sustainable Energy for Economic Development (SEED) program, which works to accelerate affordable, reliable, and clean energy access in sub-Saharan Africa by working closely with governments to develop robust and integrated national electrification strategies spanning on-grid and off-grid solutions. Her work currently focuses on off-grid solutions in Nigeria.
Ebun joined RMI in 2018 after completing her Master’s degree in Energy Systems from Northeastern University’s College of Engineering. She gained experience in energy systems through the interdisciplinary Master’s program which focused on the integration of energy systems design, financial planning and policy implementation. Prior to joining RMI, she worked with the energy efficiency team at Eversource Energy to identify energy savings opportunities and develop strategies to reduce building energy loads. Ebun also worked with the City of Boston to analyze Building Energy Reporting and Disclosure Ordinance (BERDO) data to help inform policy actions that encourage the reduction of building energy usage. During her graduate program at Northeastern, she worked as a Program Manager for two years where she managed multiple projects for Enabling Engineering, an organization that builds assistive technology devices for individuals with disabilities.
