  • Carbon-Free Transportation

E.J. joined RMI’s Carbon-Free Transportation team in 2014. He leads the Battery Circular Economy Initiative (BCEI) and passenger vehicle electrification/infrastructure work at RMI. BCEI ensures that the battery supply chain does not become a limiting factor to EV adoption due to technical or social reasons. E.J.’s work in this space includes evaluating the economic, social, and environmental opportunities of battery circularity, its investment needs, and the policy strategy needed to drive circularity. His vehicle electrification work includes public charging infrastructure, ridehail electrification, and transit bus electrification. He also has expertise in the intersection of electric utilities, regulation, rate design, and vehicle electrification. Current projects include strategic support for the complete electrification of Bermuda’s transportation system and data-driven charging infrastructure optimization.


Prior to joining RMI, E.J. worked in aerospace for Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and Materials Research & Design.
