Lachlan Carey is a senior associate at RMI, where he is leading work on US regional economic development through clean energy investment. Through work on US clean energy competitiveness across a range of critical clean energy technologies, RMI is turning research into targeted regional investment strategies. These strategies will identify region-specific clean energy economic development opportunities and prioritize the areas of investment needed to help drive a clean energy economic development strategy in specific multi-state regions.
Previously at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Carey’s research and writing covered the geopolitics of the clean energy transition, comparative green industrial policy, US federal climate policy, and clean energy supply chains. Prior to moving to the United States to study at Princeton’s School of Public and International Affairs, Carey was an economist at the Australian Treasury Department.
