Rappaport Public Policy Fellow



My Rappaport fellowship gave me an opportunity to gain experience with one of the state's most successful programs: energy- efficiency in state-owned buildings. I am honored to have been selected for this program.

"I was thinking my career plans were destined for the renewable energy market, which is showier, but I learned so much about energy efficiency that I now work for such a firm that helps the education market in that respect. My background at the DOER was extremely valuable in this regard."

Description of Fellowship
Reporting to the program established by Governor Deval Patrick’s Executive Order 484 “Leading by Example: Clean Energy and Efficient Buildings,” the fellowship involved providing program support and analysis for energy-efficiency installations and measures in state-owned facilities. Projects included developing research and recommendations on the IRS Section 179D tax deduction for energy-efficient buildings, performing a data analysis on the energy use intensity (EUI) of 28 state-owned LEED-certified buildings, and conducting qualitative research and reporting on the results of Massachusetts’ $55 million American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 State Energy Program.
