Jeremiah Johnson received his PhD in Environmental Engineering from Yale University in 2007. He then spent five years working in the energy industry, advising utility executives and senior management on renewable energy strategy and conducting energy market analysis. In the Fall of 2012, he joined SNRE and the Center for Sustainable Systems as an Assistant Research Scientist.
Dr. Johnson’s research employs systems approaches to assess the environmental impacts of variable renewable energy grid integration and large scale energy storage. Other areas of investigation include developing methods for more informed generation resource planning and forecasting material use impacts stemming from changing generation portfolios.
