CIERP Research Seminar with Kevin Knobloch

Kevin Knobloch, who has more than 37 years of experience in public policy, government, advocacy and media, and who serves as Chief of Staff at the U.S. Department of Energy, will present "The Relationship Between Clean Energy/Climate Policy and Expanding Corporate Markets."

Knobloch’s research seeks to provide a timely and nuanced understanding of the perspectives of key leaders in the corporate and private equity sectors about the relationship between public policies, programs and finance vehicles and economic growth and expanding markets -- at this moment in time when costs for low-carbon technology are declining and deployment is increasing, but the current federal administration is pushing a dramatic reversal in energy and climate policy. 

As Chief of Staff at the U.S. Department of Energy and senior aide to Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz, Kevin Knobloch worked domestically to implement DOE's portion of President Obama's Climate Action Plan, and internationally on the Clean Energy Ministerial and Mission Innovation. As President of the Union of Concerned Scientists, he was a dynamic leader who bolstered UCS’s scale and influence. Kevin Knobloch joined the CIERP team as Senior Research Associate in 2017 and currently directs the Corporate Approaches to Climate and Clean Energy research project.

Hosted by the Tufts Center for International Environment and Resource Policy (CIERP).
