According to EDF, fellows work “to help transform the way businesses and individuals utilize energy. By analyzing data, crafting financing solutions and evaluating energy management practices within these leading organizations, the EDF Climate Corps Class of 2015 fellows will be driving forward a new era in energy management.”
