student : Julia SzinaiMPP, MS

Julia studied economics and Spanish at UC Berkeley as an undergraduate, and realized her interest in energy and environmental issues while a research assistant at the UC Energy Institute. After consulting in the energy and finance sectors, she worked at Pacific Gas & Electric forecasting electric generation and its cost for customer rates. She focused on capacity markets, and valuing the capacity of renewable resources. At the dual ERG and Goldman program, Julia is studying policies to facilitate cost effective integration of renewable resources, and is interested in how technologies such as energy storage, demand response, and electric vehicles impact the reliability of the grid with increased renewable resources.
