Elizabeth Brooke Stein
Areas of expertise: Energy efficiency, smart grid
Elizabeth Brooke Stein is an attorney in EDF’s US Climate and Energy Program, focusing on energy efficiency in large commercial buildings and the development of a low-carbon energy system.
Elizabeth has focused on energy in buildings in New York City, including the City’s adoption and implementation of the Greener, Greater Buildings laws, energy-aligned leasing and the Clean Heat Program, and has worked with the City and other public and private parties to address barriers to creating a durable market for energy efficiency by helping to design and support innovations relating to energy efficiency finance, such as On-Bill Repayment and EDF’s Investor Confidence Project. Elizabeth has also engaged in state, regional and federal proceedings to advocate for the promulgation of technology and practices that improve the flexibility and performance of the electric system, and thus enable the full deployment of more diverse low-carbon resources, including low-carbon demand response and intermittent renewable resources.
In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, Elizabeth and her colleagues in EDF’s New York office have been working to ensure the post-Sandy transformation of New York’s electric system is built on a foundation of resiliency and sustainability, not just durability.
