The Sustainability Office is thrilled to announce the addition of Dr. Anne Stephenson to the team. Dr. Stephenson joins us as the RMI Sustainability Fellow with a specific focus on emissions mitigation strategies in campus buildings. She’ll be working half-time throughout the upcoming year to model potential energy and cost savings on campus and to conduct cost-benefit analyses of carbon reduction initiatives like appliance upgrades, weatherization projects, and fuel switching. She will create a “bundled” proposal to seek funding for these projects campus-wide, while involving students in assessment and project pilots.
Annie holds a PhD from the University of Chicago where she focused at times on energy efficiency in historic buildings and served as a Sustainability Project Coordinator in 2007. She’s a USGBC LEED Accredited Professional, a Building Performance Institute Building Analyst, and a Home Energy Rating System Rater. Most recently, she’s been the Campus Outreach Coordinator at Clean Air-Cool Planet in Portsmouth, NH, where she consults on climate action plans and carbon reduction projects with colleges across the country. She also manages CA-CP’s Climate Fellowship Program.
You can reach Annie in the Sustainability Office in Constable Hall on Wednesdays and Thursdays (when she’s not in a boiler room somewhere). Welcome to Unity, Annie!
